Fund-raising at the Kingston Tim Smith benefit gig

Postby higgy » Thu May 19, 2011 23:17

Hi folks,
we're organising the Tim benefit in Kingston on 11th June. We're trying to be creative about ways to raise money. ::idea: :?: We're now having a special run of T-shirts printed and are asking folks to donate Cardiacs rarities too, for sale or raffle. What do you reckon? Can anyone help?
- Nick.

Hi Nick,

Would a 7" Is this the life single help? If so I'll bring it along.

If you end up with a collection of rarities you might get more if you auction it?

(Just an idea from the current b3ta newsletter and I quote)

* B3TANS' CAT MONEY JOY - riverghost writes,
"If you have a spare line or two in the
newsletter, the London B3ta Bash managed to
raise a thousand pounds for the Cat Survival
Trust. Although it would have been only about
£150 if it was not for Happytoast's outstanding
idea at the 11th hour, to make the raffle an
auction. Unbelievably, the highest lot to go
was a Magic of Chutney original that went at
£135!!!" Learn from this, people - auctions
make more money than raffles. Important
information right there.
