I'm helping run a charity golf outing for the 4th year in a row. I deal with the pro, book the course, meals, drink tickets, etc, and print off all necessary handouts the previous day for rules, prizes, etc., and MC the dinner. Haha, that sounds like I do the whole thing, but trust me, I don't. I have a lot of help.
Anyway, some of things done already:
1) Silent auction items (stuff we have this year are Steelers-Ravens tickets, Pirate tickets, Andrew McCutchen signed ball, Troy Polamalu signed jersey, foursomes at private clubs, Myrtle Beach condo week) Guess what city I'm from.
2) Chinese auction items (gift baskets, gift cards, etc.)
3) Move-up holes--For $20 per foursome, you can move up to the red tees on three holes (usually Par 5s)
4) Par 3 contest hole. $10, you get a sleeve of cheap balls no matter what, if you hit the green you get $10 worth of Chinese auction tickets.
Any other ideas? Any help is appreciated.
In case anyone was wondering, the charity is for my friend whose children, who have an incurable and inevitably fatal disease (late infantile battens). His oldest (9) died this past January.
