There are many great ideas that participants over the years have used to raise funds and awareness for AAF. Each year participants get more creative on fundraising. Participants had wine tasting parties, daily office loose change collection, picnics in the park with a silent auction, morning coffee and bake sale at the office and other creative office contests People can’t donate if they don’t know you are participating as an AAF volunteer!
