aggressive goal of $30,000 for my team, The Pizza Oven.
I challenged each of my team members to set their own
personal fundraising goal of at least $100.
I believe this is a very attainable goal by asking ten
people for $10.
addition, our Family Team Chair, Donna Treubig, tells me that
many of our families are setting goals for themselves.
Families that are conducting a Letter Writing Campaign
(LWC) can expect to raise $1,000.

strategy to meet that goal.
