October is COOKIE MONTH!

“Me LOVE cookies!” said the Cookie Monster. 

October is Cookie Month.  And, there are SO MANY ways to tie cookies into an awareness or fundraising campaign.  With so many delicious ways to make a cookie event fun and fruitful, here are a few to get you started on your own recipe for success:

Oreo Stack & Swallow! 

Contests have to stack as many Oreos as they can without falling over and then eat the stack.  If the stack falls, they have to start all over again.  First person to stack and eat all their cookies wins!

Biggest Cookie Contest!

Host a bake off offering a prize for the person that bakes the biggest cookie!  Coordinate a bake sale around the special event!

Cookie Monster Mash!

Host a Cookie Monster party for kids.  Make the party Sesame Street themed.  Have someone dress up like Cookie Monster.  Have a Cookie Monster sound-a-like contest, and of course offer all kinds of cookies with prizes for the best looking cookie, best tasting cookie, and best dunking into milk cookie!

Miniature Golf Day!

Miniature Golf Day is celebrated on the 21st of September.  We never knew about this whacky holiday, but it gave Good Paws a great idea…hope you like it!

There are TONS of charity golf events out there, but you never really hear about any miniature golf tournaments or events.  Kids love miniature golf and it is a sport for kids of ALL ages!  So, why not host a miniature golf fundraiser FUR your organization?

Contact a local miniature golf course and come up with a price per round or discounted fee for use of the golf course.  Then, solicit foursomes just like a regular golf outing.  Put a few great prizes together and start selling tickets.  Before you know it, you will have a unique and fun event that families will love!  And, don’t forget the ice cream!  If there isn’t a concession stand at the mini golf facility, consider asking an ice cream food truck to join your efforts.

Golf and ice cream!  Sounds like a hole in one to us!  FORE!
