    One of the easiest is the Little Ceaser Pizza kits. your group makes $5-6 per kit sold. In our area the schools do these too. So we try to not do ours right after the school does.

    Big Boy in our town does Celebrity Waiter night were the tips and a percentage of sales goes to 4-H. 4-H supplies the wait staff, we have had our state representative serve before (he grew up in 4-H)

    This past summer we went to a barn raising fundraiser and they had this bottle draw.....From what I understand ....you have people donate bottles of whatever..I seen shampoo,ketchup,relish,hot sauce, WINE and booze /beer(adults only) anything thats in a bottle...also had little bottles filled with candies...and then they had a tub full of different cans of pop and water bottles....the bottles on the tables were numbered and the same number was printed on a paper and was placed in the same container to be drawn .....then on other tickets they wrote water or pop that go in the same container to be drawn.....so I think they sold the tickets 3 for $5.00 or $2.oo a ticket...It was a really hot day...so the pop and water they sold for a dollar each...went really good...I guess you could change it to anything you want to...candy draw/can draw/ etc etc....we came home with a water ,mustard and a bottle of Vodka.....they had one 4o oz that attracted alot of people....

    Around here hoagies (subs, heros, whatever you all them in your area) are always a great money maker.
