10 Money-making Ideas for Events

Host a Doggy Beauty Contest

Get your employer's permission to hold a doggy beauty contest and "bring your pooch to work" day. Charge an entry fee and offer small prizes for the cutest, sexiest, homeliest and most congenial dog. You'll be surprised at the canines your coworkers own, and learning more about the fellow in the next cubby (and his trusty canine friend) is fun. Have a parade and judging in the parking lot of your facility. This is a great way to raise money for an animal charity in your community. Most employers are good sports, especially when events can be timed around the lunch hour. Make sure all the entrants have their shots, are well-behaved around other dogs and are leash-trained. Have pooper bag stations in place outdoors, too. After that, let the best dog win.
