Mission Viejo High School’s Diablo football team needed to raise money for new training and safety equipment and facilities, and they had a small timeframe to work with. Traditional fundraising efforts taking weeks or months weren’t the answer. The solution was to pump up the previous year’s fundraiser – the high school’s annual Diablo Classic Golf Tournament.



California-based Mission Viejo chose one of South Orange County’s finest golf courses to host the event, and used the Diablo Classic website and a variety of online and personal communication efforts to advertise it. The tourney featured a round of golf plus lunch, dinner and opportunities to win Diablo-branded promotional gifts via hole-in-one contests and other on-course events. Prizes included branded golfers’ gift-packs featuring shoe bags, divot fixers and tee pouches. Diablo-branded thank-you gifts were also given to golfers to encourage them to donate to the football team.

Tournament participants and donors enjoyed the promotional gifts, and the branding helped keep the Diablos in mind well after the football season ended. The tournament itself was a success as the effort exceeded expectations, raising more than enough money to cover the season’s football needs.

Are you looking to raise money for your school or sports team?

Make sure to use innovative techniques to connect prospects to a school’s offerings to boost school enrollment or raise funds for teams. The best methods to do this use promotional products and a strong partnership with your distributor who can show you great ways to incorporate branded items into your campaign.

ASK KRISTEN / closeout promotional products?

What are your thoughts on closeouts?


Clients have called me on many occasions looking for closeout DEALS on promotional products and apparel. Closeout promotional items are usually offered at a discount (and sometimes a DEEP discount), which can be very exciting to someone on budget. Once in a while we get LUCKY, but unfortunately closeouts usually don’t work out for several reasons:

  1. Many items go into closeout because they are “old hat” or just unpopular. Even at a discount these items will most likely NOT appeal to your customer long term if at all.
  2. Some items are discontinued due to product flaws, or they have improved the initial product. These items look and sound great, but they may not function properly or as well as the new version.
  3. Some companies stop offering certain items because their inventory is very low and they have decided not to reorder. Often, by the time you find these closeouts they are already sold out, which can be very disappointing.
  4. When it comes to “children’s” items, meant for children under 12, many items go on closeout because due to new laws they are no longer deemed safe for children. These are never a good idea because if they get into the hands of children under 12 AND have your name on them AND a child gets injured you and your company could be liable.

If you want some new, creative, functional, cutting edge and affordably-priced ideas – Call us today at 860-304-2899.
