One thing that has been very succesful for us is a yearly golf outing. We charge so much per team and then have so much per hole sponsors. Besides sponsors donating money we also have prizes donated. We also incorperated a hog raffle into it one year and it did really well, but the newness wore out and we decided to drop it after the second year.
