Sample ideas to get you started
Dine and donate night
Ask a local restaurant or cafe if they could hold a “NYC Spin-In Night” in which a portion of the proceeds for the day benefit the event.
Organize a Super Bowl party and ask everyone for a donation when they arrive. You can do this for any sporting event of your choice.
Get your friends and family together once a month for game night. Encourage everyone to bring a food dish. Everyone pays $5 to play, with all the money going to your NYC Spin-In fundraising goal.
