Just got off the phone with the American Cancer Society and everything looks great! We have a follow-up call scheduled for next week when their managing director is back in the office.

What should we do to raise a TON of money for them?

a) should we do giving works auctions?
b) should we do a live auction in Atlanta?
c) should we do a poker tournament?
d) are there any nearby roller-coasters we can get people on?

We raised over $80,000 last year for Habitat for Humanity (Thanks eBay for $50,000 of it) which was totally awesome! I want us to raise even more this year! Success will take participation from everyone (I hope everyone will participate) and we all will be helping an amazing cause!

What do you think?
