Thank you for your interest in Mackenthun’s Outdoor Mack Shack Fundraiser for non-profit organizations. The Mack Shack is available at Mackenthun’s from mid-April through the end of August. Please read through the following information to determine if this fundraiser will work for your group. If so, please fill out the form below.
Fundraising Success The success of your fundraiser is determined by price and your advertising strategy. Inform the members of your organization and have them spread the word that you are fundraising at Mackenthun’s. We have found that a minimum of four signs (22” x 28”) listing the name of your organization, information about your program, how the funds will be distributed, plus the items you are selling and the retail price is important to donating customers. You may employ other creative advertising strategies with the approval of Mackenthun’s.
Fundraising groups choose the products they want to sell and set their retail based on profit they desire for the event.
