I need assistance coming up with a new title for our fund-raising event. We are a non-profit organization providing specialized health care services to 24 permanent residents who are wheel-chair bound and possess physical and intellectual disabilities. We also have an Acquired Brain Injury Program with 5 permanent residents.
This new event is replacing an fund-raising event that we have held for 27 years. It was called "Participation Lodge Lucky Lodge Lottery. Businesses donated the prizes for the event and tickets were sold in the public from September up until January and was sponsored by an organization that also assisted with ticket sales. Due to the downfall in ticket sales this year along with lack of those willing to sell the tickets, the event has been cancelled.
I would like to start this event up again with a new name and sell tickets in the spring up until July.
The title of the event would have to start with the name: Participation Lodge.....
The funding from the ticket sales of this event is solely being forwarded towards building a Community Based Home for those in the community with Acquired Brain Injuries as we are full to capacity.
Can you help me come up with the rest of the title?
I hate to see this event be trashed after 27 years.

I want to ask a question first: I can guess the reasons for the last campaign failing. What did those people refusing give as answers for not participating? (Or could you ask them).
Because lotteries are not cheap to run, and there is a great danger of running into the same problems again.
I agree that it is a shame to see an institution go by the board, only times do change. 27 years ago we had no internet. Today it dominates everything we do.
What have other people in your niche done to mitigate this problem?
Could you have a "sponsored wheelchair" with a monthly donation?
What if some of your more able residents were sent out with tickets to sell? At least it would raise awareness in your locality.
"Participate in Participation Lodge"
"Participation is Participation Lodge"
PL where everybody participates
What do you think? M xx

Hi Everyone -
I am closing this question and awarding points now because the asker has not verified their membership in this forum.
