2. Become a Free Agent Fundraiser (FAF)

FAFs create their own individual fundraising page for the shelter and invite their friends, family, coworkers, etc. to donate to their page. All fundraisers who raise $500 or more will win 2 tickets to Cook Off. Whether it’s $10 or $100, the gifts can add up and you could be looking at 2 free tickets to Cook-Off on April 26!

Follow these steps to become an FAF. The deadline to become a FAF is March 27th.


3. On April 22nd, post on social media and share with your network how you support Carpenter’s Shelter!

Be sure to attend a day-of event around the city as well:

- Visit Sugar Shack to get a free donut on April 22nd with proof of donation (print or email receipt)
