New fundraiser offers experience instead of dinner

Another great idea from my hometown market, Crescent City Farmers Market. They have come to the realization that their annual fundraiser takes so much energy and time away from their markets and in a very busy holiday event season, has a limited return. Truly, for an non-profit of their size to do these type of events and make less than 20 grand means it’s not usually worth the wear and tear on the market community. Some markets see their event as their educational event each year, and if it’s used to expand the reach of the market as well, then the return can be less. But for a market like CCFM, which is well-known already, going another way to raise unrestricted income seems appropriate.
Instead, they have worked with some of their close supporters and vendors to offer skills and experience for a price. The list is great and should shake out some good cash for the markets.
Always innovating over there at Market Umbrella…
