Has anyone had success with Southwest Airlines? We have applied 2 years in a row and have not had any luck. Feeling discouraged.....

Winterfest:
How did you get or request it in short notice. The pre-qualification wouldn't allow me to do it for less than a month or 6 months.

Absolutely no luck getting any out of area hotels. Some say they donate locally - which doesn't make good marketing sense to me. If they gave at least a one night stay to a distant auction, wouldn't the winners be more likely to pay for a second & third night?

I do have a local bed & breakfast who has agreed to swap one night there with someone who can give me a night's stay near Orlando. You could add a second night with a discounted bedandbreakfast.com card from Costco. The
B & B is in "horse country" outside of Louisville and you could get tickets to Churchill Downs, Slugger Museum, maybe schedule it during Thunder over Louisville (free),.... Of course, the Orlando hotel/B & B would have to agree with the exchange. Any takers?

You have to request the Disney tickets at least 60 days prior to your event but no more than 60. Last year we received our approval about a week after we requested and the tickets came a couple of weeks before the event.

The only success we have had with national hotels is Drury Inns. We do see some success when requesting them from local hotels.

This is heaven. Exactly what I needed.
I am all new to this site as of today. I noticed in the I believe 2011 forum I saw what caught my eyes the most as a great fundraiser

-The Disney $500 package for fundraising. I was thinking that I could get tickets made[100 per book] and sell each ticket for $5(too much?)
-Is this easy to get?
-Has anyone seen a bigger eye catching fundraiser than this that will make the buyer purchase a ticket?

By the way there is hardly any support here through the booster club and it is also a bit out of control. I would rather not be involved in what seems so political, so I am trying to do this on my own and raise money. By the way this is to raise money for the High School basketball team; the have their own/additional non-profit club.


Be careful if you are going to raffle off the Disney passes. The last time i looked at the donation rules, I thought they prohibited them from being used in raffles.
