Successful Fundraising with the WAG - Wine/Art/Gun Cabinet

Banquets FNRA Fundraising Gun Cabinet Gun SAfes Kelsey's Collection Making Money for Charity NRA WAG Wine Art Gun Cabinets Wooden Gun Cabinet

The most succesful banquets utilizing the WAG as the fundraising vehicle, have done it by selling raffle tickets for $20 bucks each.  Then buckets are put in front of the items and the ROI is determined by how many $20 tickets are in the bucket, divided by the the cost of the item.  The last lady I talked with on this, at a FNRA banquet in Texas, last March, had to put a 5 gal bucket in front of the WAG to collect all the tickets.  She had no idea how many ticket there were, probablyu 300 to 500 tickets, so they raised $6,000 to upward of $10,000 on that one measly little $400 item.  Course this year they are going for it again and adding our wine cabinet, the Jessica Model with Grapes and Goldfinch by Rosemary Millette, as well as a lodgebox with Caped Crusaders, one of our new artists, Daniel Smith, and then a Kindlingbox with a black bear by Millette, called Streamside Bears.  We are throwing in a free toy box, called Bergsma Bunnies, by Jody Bergsma, for the little girls in the crowd, and a few firestarters for the kindling box, made by Super Cedar, a local firm and actually one of my neighbors.


We are also going to give a promo discount coupon, that the NRA can also sell, for after the banquet purchases at  our web site, retail facility with greatly discounted pricing AND, a 10% after banquet spiff to the chapter.  So thats how the smart ones are doing it and I thought I would share this with you so you too can be amongst the cogniscenti.
