Evening watching game from luxury box with some local vets would be good grand prize. You may even be able to arrange for sport celeb to attend.
A lot of the licensees have luxury boxes, would probably donate. Baseball has most games so prob best opp to snag off night when there are 81 home games as opposed to 8 in the NFL. Licensee should cover cost of food drink too.
Get everything in order before approaching the Clubs and licensess. In Canada fundraisers require gov't approval, I think lottery Number is issued and so on. Quote that garbage in your correspondence with Clubs/licensees, gives you cred.
