Spring is in full swing, and with it, a peak time for fundraising events like annual galas, golf tournaments and live auctions. Have you brainstormed ways to keep your events new and exciting?

It's tempting to think "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Fact is, fresh ideas are the antidote to donor fatigue, no matter how successful your events have been in the past. Bringing something new to the table can supercharge attendance and revenue for almost all nonprofits.

Here's an idea to get donors buzzing about your annual spring fundraiser: hold a Mother's Day and Father's Day "Winner's Choice" Raffle!

Read on for a quick overview of how a raffle can raise tens of thousands of dollars for your cause, plus see the best raffle prizes that honor the upcoming holidays and take just minutes to reserve.
