  1. Bowling - I like it! What other ideas do you have for fundraisers like this?

  2. Hi Arlene: Bowling may work. But for hospitals a concert/gala event may be better.

    I highly recommend having someone call all the nonprofits in your community and finding out what is being done each month. It should be fairly easy for you to see an opportunity!
