Every year your club has a Fall Festival right around the time of Halloween. We have always done it as an outreach activity to keep community children from the more evil aspects that go along with Halloween.

This year we decided to use this activity as a fundraiser. Each unit had to come up with two activities. One of them was a fundraising activity, the other was free (this way we still provided the community with a way to have fun without all of the scaring and other stuff as well as maintaining our outreach goals). Obviously, the free activities would draw more people, but they were interspersed between the paying activities. Paying booths included: horseback riding, a bake sale (earn an honor), paper quilling products (earn an honor), candle making (earn an honor), a silent auction, tie-dye shirts (earn an honor), and, of course, we sold food as well.

The end result turned out very well.

Nice. I preached a sermon last year about Halloween. I don't think most people understand the spiritual danger it presents. It's very good to offer an alternative, fundraiser or otherwise.
