This past Saturday, we had a great event to raise money for our West Campus Guides. We had spent the previous two weeks selling breakfast vouchers for pancakes and bacon at Applebee’s. Those folks were nice enough to open their doors three hours before they normally open to accommodate breakfast to all of the people we sold vouchers to!
It became a great inter-club competition. Guides brought out their best salesmanship skills, and it was fun selling against my fellow peers. Once at Applebee’s, we set up the entire restaurant and then served everyone who bought a voucher. We had a great turn-out of almost a hundred people!
Folks were well satisfied, and although we didn’t get enough contestants for the all-you-can eat pancake challenge, we are hoping next year that will come to fruition. All in all it was a successful event in that we raised money for our club, provided an affordable and delicious breakfast to our customers, and we got to have fun talking to people on a beautiful Saturday morning. I’m excited for next year’s event and hopefully I can sell the most tickets!
