We usually do a pizza que through a local Pizza resturant that has stores nationwide. If we sell 2000 tickets we get $10,000 of our money. And we use that to invest in a large Gospel concert for which we get local and regional gospel artiste to perform for free or at a minimal cost(this was really successful the last time we came and was able to fund most of our trip). And this year I am thinking about doing a fashion show as well with local designers. Its all gonna take lots of work.
