    Hey guys, I'm writing this because I am a Resident Assistant at my college and I am currently working on developing a fundraiser and event for testicular cancer to promote awareness. I plan on selling boxers that say "protect your nuts" with National Testicular Cancer Awareness on the thigh part of the boxers but I also need an event to go along with selling boxers. I'm trying to think outside the box because we usually end up just doing tournaments like we did kickball before where it was titled "Kick balls to save balls." It usually works out but this year I would like to do something else because we do a lot of tournaments already for other fundraisers and I would like to do something more creative and something that could raise more money. This is the problem however because I'm struggling coming up with ideas. I was hoping that if you guys had any cool ideas, if you know of any good resources or anything else that could help me, if you would respond to this I would really appreciate it because I really need some help, lol! Thanks alot!

    I know you want to focus on raising funds for testicular cancer but I can't think of anything that's not like the usual "kick ball tourney" or "bake sale" kind of ideas haha i haven't had breakfast yet so my brain isn't functioning BUT that being said...

    my school has something we call Sextoberfest. We have events through out the entire week dealing with everything sex. We usually try to get comedians who talk about sex or some kind of show about sex. Also we usually have Passion Parties during the week. BUT more importantly, we have sessions a few times a week about testicular cancer, breast cancer, STDS etc. and about how to check for or prevent them. Usually we try to charge a few bucks for some of the more costly events, or a little more for the Comedy Show or if you can get someone to do it for free or for a cheaper price because you are trying to raise money for a cause then that'd be nice to.

    Its a bit of stretch but maybe you can use that idea and somehow change it a bit. I'm not sure what your budget is if you have one at all. But I just thought I'd throw that idea out there since it does work very well at my school and everyone has a lot of fun.

    ---------

    Another thought that'd probably be easier:

    You can have a "Mr. (Your School) Pageant" kind of like Miss America but with guys to keep with the whole Balls Theme and just charge a bit for entry to the show. We had something similar in high school.


    but anyway I hope that helps!

    Have you thought of doing a dance? Or a Balls Ball.

    If you can get your school to donate some space, find a DJ, and find some refreshment donations or discounts by telling them it is for a cancer fundraiser and you could have a big selling event with a small price tag.

    You could do one of those big glass containers and will it with balls (or nuts!) and have people pay a dollar to guess how many balls or nuts are in there, and maybe link the number to how many men have gotten Testicular Cancer.

    Not an event per se, but in line with fun and getting info out.
