Other innovative fund-raising projects take advantage of community events. The Charlotte County Genealogical Society, Port Charlotte, Florida, enters the county museum's Symphony of Trees event in November wherein theme Christmas trees are decorated by organizations and put on display at the museum. Later, the trees are sold to the highest bidder. The tree-designer group makes a nice profit if their theme and artistic talent appeals to the bidders. Those who bid for the �Projects for Fundraisers  trees include retail or service—industries, such as banks, travel agencies and restaurants. Specialty shops for brides, babies, sports gear, and medical equipment also participate in the bidding. Even owners of professional buildings, offices and hospitals actively take part in this annual event. Some of the themes are: state flags, costumed dolls, birds, sports and sport figures, Grandma's attic, toys from the past, transportation through the ages (eg. canoes, buggies, Conestoga wagons, ships, trains, etc.) and military history. If your community does not have such a program, you could develop one and invite other area groups to participate. [3:3 (Fall 1991) p. 20.]

The “World's Largest Ever” Garage Sale, sponsored by a group of car dealers and a newspaper want ads section, is the setting for a sale booth of the Skagit Valley Genealogical Society, Conway, Washington. Space is rented to non-profit groups and all earnings stay with that group. The event has outgrown garages and is now held at the Skagit County Fairgrounds. In 1991 the Society realized over $530 for its day's selling of donated items and homemade caramel apples. This idea could be “sold” to any large community booster group. The event sponsors enjoy a lot of community exposure.

The annual Fall Luncheon and Book sale of the California Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 77105, San Francisco, CA 94107-0105, sells duplicate books from the society's collection or out-of-field volumes donated specifically for the fund-raising event.
