One of our local grocery stores allows fundraising brat frys in their booth right outside of their store. We are penciled in for Sunday May 1 to hold a brat fry for the walk a thon. It is a $25 deposit since it is on their property and using their grill and such. We will have brats and hamburgers, they gave us a price list and profit list if we go with their suggested sale prices and the biggest profit comes from brats and burgers but a ribeye sandwhich brings a nice profit too so we are trying to decide if we want to do that as well. I am excited about the brat fry since they are usually a big hit here in town, so hopefully we are able to raise some good money but I am sure it will depend largely on the weather. Sunday is a good day since most of the people will be getting out of church and either be driving by or stopping at the store for something for Sunday dinner. We have to find people to man the booth and I think we have everyone we need and that was pretty easy to draft the people for the booth.

Thanks Denise, I sure feel like I am not doing much! But then I tell myself that everything, every little bit helps and that tends to keep me motivated. I look forward to the next few years to see how the walk develops and changes.

Well the brat fry is tomorrow and I hope the weather cooperates for a little bit at least. It will be from 10:30-2:30 so hopefully we hit the church crowd pretty hard. I will keep you updated as to how it goes.

Well the brat fry is over-and we could have had MUCH better weather! This morning it was snowing!!! The entire day the temp went between 38 and 41 degrees with periods of snow and sleet and very windy. So we were outside and very cold. There was also a brat fry at the same grocery store yesterday and every weekend this month is going to have a brat fry. There are also a lot of communions and confirmation parties today. All of the brats, hamburgers, buns, ketchup, mustard, cheese, onions and soda cost us $171 which was paid at the end of the fry. Our profit for today was $98. I was a little disappointed with that but after I thought about the weather and other parties not to mention a brat fry at the same place yesterday I don't think we did too bad. I also got another walker registered at the brat fry and several others who wanted to think it over. I don't think it went too bad considering the weather and such. I am hoping that the next time we do this it will be a much nicer day and a better time of the month so we don't have such competition for the brat fry-who wants to buy a brat when they had one yesterday?

You did a great job, Alissa! Don't forget that money (which
is important for our cause) isn't everything. You created
awareness which is VERY important. [:D]

Hugs to you!
