As you all probably know, MBGA tries to host quite a few different events throughout the year. We also try to provide some cool prizes as well. To help keep these events going, the MBGA is thinking of hosting a garage/bake sale in the fall. We are looking for feedback to see how many people would participate.

There are a few different options we are thinking:

Option A:
Each team would rent a table for $20.00 and sell their own stuff.

Option B:
Each team would donate any unwanted items they would like the MBGA to sell. With proceeds going to the MBGA.

Option C:
Teams can choose either A or B.

Thanks for your input. Laughing

I have been involved in both options for other organizations. my caution with option B is that once people donate the stuff, you have to do something with the items that don't sell. Getting everyone to come back and retrieve it is sometimes tough, or donate to local goodwill.

I was thinking what ever doesn't get sold we could donate to the Salvation Army or CDA. I have usual CDA pick up's from my place. I would be willing to take whatever's left to hold for the CDA.

I'd donate some baking and possibly some time, maybe some items, too.
