Lessons/suggestions We surpassed our goal by quite a bit and the only suggestion could be trying to get organized a little earlier because we pushed it down to the wire.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Comments Having food on a donation basis really gives people the urge to donate an extra dollar or 2. We also got lots of clubs to donate food to keep costs down. It was practically a NJMS-wide sponsored event.
