The first step to planning any fundraising event is picking a date and finding a location. See if your school will let you use the baseball field on a day the team is off. Then recruit your two teams. Get in touch with your competitive spirit; for example, consider asking teachers from the local high school to compete against teachers from the local middle school. Or pin teachers against students! This will add an extra level of fun and will be sure to recruit a spirited audience.
Charge spectators a $5 admission fee. Raise even more money by hosting a Great American Bake Sale or selling orange sunglassess at the event. Try to get more students involved by having different clubs plan activities to raise funds at the game. Remember: fundraising is only limited by your imagination!
Raise awareness to the 1 in 5 kids struggling with hunger in America every day by educating spectators with homemade posters and by distributing stickers and fact cards. Take it one step further and set up a No Kid Hungry pledge booth at the game.
