    We have never tried to raise funds, but we have offered CPC review classes and a 4 hour educational workshop, all of which generated money for the chapter.

    We are a new chapter in Rome GA and one thing our chapter is doing is having a raffle at each meeting. Members prepare a basket of goodies or donate a gift and we raffle it off at the end of the meeting (by having the raffle at the end of the meeting, that encourages all members to stay til the end). We sell the tickets for a dollar each. Our first meeting, we sold $25 worth of tickets. We also have shirts with our chapter logo and name on them that we sell. We are looking at doing a cookbook. My previous chapter had one and it was a great sucess.

    Some things that have worked for our chapter:

    50/50 raffle; tickets are $1, the drawing is done at the end of the meeting with the member getting 50% and the chapter getting 50%
    Silent auction at a end of year party; items donated by members
    Candle sales
    summer time - yard sale; members donated and worked
    we created a book mark with modifier information; $1.00 each
    Cook books, recipes from members and we put the book together ourselves and sold for $7.00.

    Hope you can use some of these ideas!

    Our chapter in DC is very small. We had an E/M seminar with a chapter member as our speaker. We had it at a church, very cheap room, nothing fancy, but much cheaper than a hotel. We paid our speaker a set amount per attendee (so we were not commited to big bucks with low turn out). We also got all our food and drinks at Sam's and had lunch delivered from a sandwich shop. We printed our 125 page workbook ourselves. We had great door prizes which we raffled. We charged $109 per person and had 8 CEUs. AND, we made a good amount of money, including profit after expenses. If you want more information please feel free to email me privately.
