    Harley. Much easier if you are near a boardwalk (like me) and get to spend nights up there selling limited number of tickets. Each week, it's a different crowd of tourists and many brother FF's stop by to say hi.

    Raffle off a car, a trip, something else. It takes more manpower to do the road collection than to sell tickets. Then again, I have never been a fan of begging for loose change.

    Easter Flower sale, also instead of doing a walk, you could try doing a mailing. car wash, Bingo used to be big around here.

    My department sells flowers at easter, holds a beef and beer comedy night around new years, and hosts a "photo show" (whacker fest) every March. One of our mutual aid departments recently raffled off a 2004 Dodge Dakota bought from a dealership in their local. It ended up giving both the fire co. and the dealership alot of good publicity.
