Lossing Money at a Fundraiser...Yes It's Possible

What a long long disapointing day!We had the big art club fundraisers today at the ceramics convention in town. We were told there would be anywhere from 100-1000 ppl coming. We went out and bought hotdogs,buns, pizza, soda, bottled water, chips, and granola bars expectating to amke tons of money off these ppl coming. Art Club members donated baked goods and a local coffee shop donated the coffee. The 100-1000 ppl we were expecting ended up being about 50 ppl which resulted in us sellingno hotdogs, no pizza, no chips and no granola bars. The only thing we sold was the donated baked goods and donated coffe. Altogether we ended up being $5 in the hole. Luckily the art teacher who was organizing it felt pity on us donated $80. So I guess it ended okay but it was majoraly disapointing.

They did have workshops though so I took one where we made painted ceramic tiles. I made the Merry Christmas one to get an early start on presents. THe rabbit one someone else did but I absolutly loved it and wanted to share it.

I'm so sorry to hear the fundraiser wasn't what you hoped it would be. I've had that happen before, and it is very disappointing.
