What type of fundraiser are you having? Sometimes the group you are raising money for have to put up a little bit of money to make money. I host a Benefit Poker Tournament every year at a local VFW, where I am a member and get to use the facility for free. There are separate divisions in the VFW and each division donates some money to this cause so that I can buy prizes for the event to be awarded to the winners. The investment they make is made back and then quite a bit more so it is worth their initial investment. If you look around at establishments such as this, they usually will offer their premises for free, if you are a member, or at a deep discount especially if it is fund raiser and also if it is for a non-profit organization. Food for thought....
