Summary of project We had a table set up at family day in the fall and at the wintertime "white coat ceremony." Being around at these two major events allowed students to get their family members to pay for the white coat embroidery for them. A little bit of extra advertising (email and class announcements) the week before the embroidery was done got us many more participants. This was a quick and easy way to raise several hundred dollars.

Lessons/suggestions Although we got information from past chapter officers about where they had done embroidery, we checked around and found a place that did the work for about 1/3 the price.
