While summer is often a time to take a break from the madness of sport schedules or to play on the recreations’ department team, it’s never too early to think about fall sports. Sports are not cheap to participate in, especially in high school. Registration fees themselves can be expensive, not to mention the uniforms, gear and travel expenses if the team has a chance to go into the playoffs or would be participating in tournaments elsewhere.
Think about it: if your child plays volleyball, football or participates in wrestling, you have to provide the shoes and pads, and it’s likely the team will be competing in some sort of tournament or will have to travel for playoff games. Swimming often involves a lot of traveling and soccer requires an awful lot of gear and travel. Golf is also expensive when you factor in golf clubs and fees to play on specific courses.
It is a great idea to get the team together to raise money to offset some of the cost for each family. Community members are most likely willing to rally alongside a local sports team. Instead of something as boring and simple as a bake sale, consider selling wholesale pizza. It means you can get a lot of pizza and set a prize for each slice of pizza or the whole pizza, or however you’d like to sell it. The following are some other reasons to sell pizzas at sport fundraisers:
The love for pizza is universal
From picky eaters, to vegetarians to those meat-eaters, usually there’s some sort of pizza everyone loves. Americans spend a total of 32 billion dollars a year on pizza, so why not have some of that money go toward your sports costs? If families are willing to spend money on pizza during the summer months for that quick meal, they might as well support a good cause while doing so.
In addition, pizza is a great product to sell during the summer, instead of trying to make money selling wrapping paper and holiday wreaths, which are only seasonal. Pizza can be great on the grill and is an easy choice for busy families and people during the summer months.
The whole team can come together and sell pizza
The more members of the team that participate in offsetting the costs of playing, the more you might be able to lower the costs. If you buy wholesale pizzas, you’ll have a lot of pizzas to sell. However, the team has an incentive to sell all of those pizzas. Working hard to sell the pizzas now will help in the future when they have to pay for new padding or new clubs or that trip to the tournament. Motivation often means that profits will increase.
Raising money with selling wholesale pizzas is probably one of the easiest ways to offset any type of cost. You don’t have to spend time baking yourself and often times pizza is an easy sell. People love their local sports and food, so consider wholesale pizza for your next fundraiser. And, to find the very best in wholesale pizza, get in touch with Giovanni’s Frozen Pizza today!
