If you're organizing a fundraiser or other large community event, you want your function to go off without a hitch and attract a large crowd. There's no better way to get community participation than to offer some kind of amazing prize via an exciting giveaway, contest, or promotion. It could be a cash prize to the winner of your 5K or a brand-new car from the local dealership for kicking a 50-yard field goal at halftime.
Whatever your prize, promotions like this are a great way to incentivize community participation. But have you ever wondered who pays for the prizes and giveaways?
