Consider Raising The Stakes
Some of our most successful events have included additional fundraisers along with their SpyTending event to maximize profit. Our recommendations include:
Silent Auction – reach out to members or organization partners to have items donated and raffle them off to the highest bidders! 50/50 Raffles – whether you want to sell tickets based on arm span or pre-determined amounts, with a 50/50 raffle, not only does one person win, but the organization does too!
Make it a Battle – have two or more SpyTenders throughout the event, competing to see who can raise the most in sales and tips!
