This week’s fundraising tip: Bar night

June 18, 2009

ScreenHunter_01 Jun. 18 20.46A number of people have told me they have been very successful hosting an event at a local bar. Speak with your local bar owner about having an Avon Walk evening. Each bar differs, some offer 10% of the total night’s sales others even more.

Offer a specialty drinks like a Pink Lady, Pink Pussycat, or Cosmopolitan. To raise even more money, offer a 50/50 raffle.

Spread the word among your friends using Facebook and MySpace. Send a mass email and ask your friends to send it to their friends, too.

Set up a pink table near the entrance and hand out pink ribbon pins to all the guests. Have a jar to collect donations. Don’t forget your coupon book in case someone wants to write a check or use a credit card.

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker half-filled with ice cubes: 2 oz. gin, 1 tsp. grenadine, 1/2 tsp cherry brandy, 1/2 oz. heavy cream, 1 egg white. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass.

Fill shaker ½ with ice. Pour in: 2 measures Gin, 2 measures Grapefruit Juice, 2-3 measures Pineapple Juice, ½ measure grenadine. Shake and strain into ice filled glass. Garnish with Pineapple Slice.

Fill shaker with ½ ice. Pour in: 1 ½ measure Vodka, 1 measure Triple Sec, Dash of Cranberry Juice. Garnish with Lime Slice.
