I heard of a fund raising event that I thought was very interesting
while attending the NE Region's Sea Badge Conference.
Approach the owner of an automatic, drive through, car wash and offer
to finish drying off all cars that come throught the wash for free. Ask
to place a large sign that says, "Free wash by Ship XXX Sea Explorers -
donations gladly accepted." The only thing you need to supply is the
towels and the sign. People are happy to get a final dry for their car,
and the owner is offering an extra service that costs him or his
customers nothing. I am sure in a busy area like Houston, you can make
more than a few dollars on a week-end.
