Restaurant Auction or Raffle (Opportunity Drawing)
Ask local restaurants to donate gift certificates for meals.
Explain that the certificates will be auctioned to the highest bidder (or raffled off), and tell them how you’ll use the proceeds to help send youth to camp. Then plan an auction event and advertise your auction to the community as well as to your church or sell the tickets to everyone you know for $1. (One way to guarantee your success is to get desserts donated for your auction event and tell people that $1 buys access to the auction and to an unlimited dessert bar.)
