From Vic and we have done a couple of things that raised good money for state teams.Sold wine ,and had a "talking hoops night"...lucky enough we got gaze and Michelle Timms as guest speakers.$20.00 a head BYO drinks and snacks..10 players with a table for 10 tickets each to sell is a quick $2,000.
We canvassed local retailers for ANY donation and sold raffle tickets (cheap ) on the night.Auctioned off some memorabilia .We ended up with about 160 people and did it mid week so easy to get people there.
Get Marty Clarke as your guest speaker and you will fill the place considering the current emotions running around SA.Good Luck

A lot of businesses will donate goods rather than cash. These are pretty handy in a raffle.

There's also a bakery at Murray Bridge that used to sell family sized meat pies which are very handy for young families, or bachelors. I think the club makes $3/pie or something.

Organise a quiz night. Lucky squares are easy to prepare and sell quickly. You can make some good money from these.

Ask the players to check with their local council. The council may have a sports program where they sponsor a player who comes from their area and is playing at the state level, I think it gives the council some kudos for having that player coming from their area.

Another one is to just beg for the money...
