I would like to help one of my shelters come up with THINK-OUTSIDE-THE-BOX fundraising ideas...anybody have any suggestions?

I have done some fundraising in the past, and am looking for new ideas.
Things I have already brainstormed on:
50/50 drawing
bottles for buns (pop bottle drive)
open house/bbq (all proceeds go to shelter)
golf/bowl/etc. for buns (all proceeds go to shelter)
cutest pet contest (all proceeds go to shelter)

Thank you so much for your replies!

Maybe a 50/50 raffle! That way people will spend thinking they may win half of the money received! Good luck!

It depends on what level you wish to get to and how much help you will have. This weekend we are having a poker run, there have been golf outings, bowl-a-thons, schools have organized school yard sales, to bigger events that are semi-formal dinners witj entertainment.................Dennis

i remember seeing a fundraiser once where the group raising money had this old, broken down, junker car, and for a few dollars, you could take a swing at it with a sledge hammer. strange and perhaps a bit wasteful, i know, but i can't help thinking that i would gladly pay $5 to take a swing at a computer that didn't have any hope of ever running again anyway. it would be cathartic. it would have to be done somewhere where there would already be lots of people.

and then i've seen groups that sell "paintings" made by some of their animals. this would, of course, involve buying or having someone donate canvas & non-toxic washable paint & then would involve cleaning up messy bunny feet, but it would be different.
