we are excited to hear of your interest in gathering others and hosting a fundraiser....it's this sort of enthusiasm that makes a real difference. However, there is a (simple, yet critical) protocal for raising money and representing the Foundation. Step one is to to complete a Volunteer Form where you share your event idea for support and approval. From there we share guidelines, as Kara mentioned, for holding an appropriate and rewarding event.
Please contact me directly and I will be better able to help you get moving on a project.
