The Missouri Valley Fire Department had a good fund raiser around halloween We put on a haunted house in a small town that dont have anything lke that going on. In 4 days we did better than expected. This was the master plan of one of our members and he headed it up and it went down with ou a single problem and hardly any money in it at all. Nate did a great job with his crew of helpers.

There are many of different things that one can do to raise money for there department if they have the time to put things together. I am in the process of putting together an Comedy night to raise money for my departments burnout fund. I really isn't that much work to get something like this going. All that you need is somewhere to host it and people to come. We are going to do ours on Feb. 13th 2010 and already just by word of mouth we have almost 100 tickets sold without even advertising it anywhere and we only have 300 tickets to sell. We are going to have a dessert bar for people if they want it and also have a no host bar. We are charging $20 a tickets and after everything is done we will profit over $3000 which is a good amount for a burnout fund. Next year is already in the works and we are going to go extrication equipment but we are going to have a dinner and show so the profits will be alot more. I have some more ideas and will post them soon. If anyone has any question please email or commet. The Comdey night if all free until the night of and then that is whe you have to pay for everything so not really to much out of pocket for the department.
