Field Note

Scott CHS Hangar Dance

Nostalgia sells, from 1920s gangsters to 1950s sock hops and everything in between. Fundraisers are important to historical organizations, but not just for the money they bring in. Equally important is getting your organization's name out in the public and providing patrons with memorable experiences that will pique their interest and keep them coming back!
