Spook-tacular Fundraising Ideas!
5 Simple Ways to Reach Your Fundraising Goal this Halloween 

1. Throw a Monster Mash! Make sure you have a great playlist (see below), spooky decorations, yummy treats, and fun activities (bobbing for apples, mummy-wrap contest, or even fortune-telling!) With such a great party lined up, your guests won't mind paying a small cover to get in, especially if you tell them it's for TeamQuest!

2. Sell Halloween-themed treats! Bust out those Pinterest skills and make some mummy pretzels, witch's hat cone cakes, creepy candy bark, or spooky brownies

3. Make your house a haunted house! The creepier, the better. Charge a fee to get in and then scare the pants off your neighbors! Go all out with a fog machine, strobe lights, and creepy noise recordings. Bonus points if you can figure out how to make fake brains! 

4. Pumpkin smashing contest! Let's be real, who doesn't want to smash a pumpkin into a million little pieces? You'll need a lot of pumpkins, trash bags, and a baseball bat. Charge $1 per swing or $5 per pumpkin. This should probably be an outdoor activity. 

5. Costume bidding war! This one is pure gold. Spread the word to your friends, family, coworkers, and classmates that whoever donates the most money to your fundraising page gets to choose your Halloween costume.
