Summertime is a great time to plan an event to fundraise for mesothelioma causes!
If you’re looking for some ideas, here are just a few:
BBQ: Hold a barbecue dinner at your local community organization, park, or Church! Ask businesses in your area to donate food, drinks, paper plates, etc.
5K Run or Walk: These events can be a bit more involved, but if you ask, people are always more than willing to help. Find out if there is a race organization in your area who can help you, or talk to volunteers of similar events. They can be a wealth of knowledge.
Festivals or Carnivals: If there are events like these in your area, ask if you can set up a vendor table. Pass out information, collect donations, raffle off some baskets (this has always worked well for my family) and raise some funds!
Collect at local businesses: Ask local businesses if you can do a collection day for your cause. Stand outside the business with a can for a few hours, pass out information, and you will be surprised how generous people will be!
Hold a golf outing: If you’re a golfer, or know lots of people who like to golf, take advantage of the courses in your area and ask if they would help you plan an event. Here’s a perfect excuse to play 18 holes!
These are just a couple of ideas for fundraisers, but the possibilities are endless. Take advantage of the warmer months and help to find a cure for mesothelioma!
