to tie in with Kate we raised quite a shocking amount of money with a cake walk at Tylers fundraiser. We had total of maybe 40 cakes, all different . Some in Christmas shapes, I did a large gingerbread man, some were shaped like ornaments or Santa. There was a beautiful glazed sponge, a carmel apple cake a fruitcake , you get my drift . You sell booklets of tickets say 5 chances for $10.00 and there is a row of chairs and every 1/2 hour or so depending on how many cakes you have you allow one group in( if you have 6 chairs then 5 people) and play a Christmas song. when the music stops have them find a chair( musical chairs!) the one left out wins the cake! Or marked sidewalk on the floor with phrases like winner, sorry ect and when the music stops the one on winner wins, or pass an ornament and the one who has it in their hands wins when the music stops. It doesn't have to be cake, it could be cany, cookie platters, wine, ect. We sold single tickets as well as booklets. The money comes from the fact that the winner pays only 2.00 for something that is worth more but will have to spend more if they really like that cake!
