This is not really diabetes related, but it could be if applied that way.
I have a very dear friend whose adult daughter has a rare form of cancer. She has put her life (and work) on hold and relocated to New York to get her through all of this. Of course, New York is not cheap and just getting to and from the hospital for treatments can cost as much as $100 a day. Much less her medical bills, even with insurance, are mounting. They have been up there since the start of the year.
Her daughter is a trooper and always positive. She's quite an amazing young lady. Even the doctors are amazed at her vitality in such dire times.
Anyway, I am trying to help some of her friends do a fund raiser and I was wondering if any of you have any experience in doing things like that? We have a room in an upscale organic market donated for our use, but we don't really know where to begin. The most fund raising I have ever done is car washes and bake sales.
We have considered a cocktail party, or dinner. But we don't know where to start to get people to show up. Media…all those things are a mystery to me. I would love your input.
