A couple of examples of the non-event from North Dakota:
- a theatre sold tickets for a Dark Night – people stayed home, the theatre was closed – little time/money invested, pretty good return.
- a church held a non-rummage sale; inviting members to contribute $25, instead of the time and effort to donate “stuff.” Very positively received.
- a phantom run was scheduled – and not held. T-shirts were sold for the non-vent, which raised funds. It can become an annual non-event with different shirts each year.
This is one of my favorite type of events – limited investment of funds and volunteers. Some, cannot easily become an annual event.
