ok so my junior department just found out we're overdrawn. We made this huge list of things to raise money ranging from a 3 am bake sale on black friday to a polar car wash (nov 2). What has your department done to raise money? We really need some ideas, this has really never been an issue for us before so we are kinda lost. help please

our biggest fundraiser is a road coin toss on a long weekend in a busy intersection. Spare change from passing motorists adds up quickly.
another big one is a pig roast that we do. A local diner donates everything, including the pig and the all the cooking so everything is pure profit. Check with some local businesses to see if they have any services that they would be willing to donate to help out your cause. Sometimes they are more willing to do that then just hand over a check, plus free publicity for them.
We done pork sandwich sales, sold pizza out of our kitchen, gas tickets, $700.00 tickets, Cash Bashes. You could even talk to local resturants and see if they would do coupons and for every coupon some one uses at their store they would donate so much to you.
If you live in rural area see with your leader if it is ok to do control burns in ditches and things like that. We do bake sales, burn ditches, and things like that.
