All Souls Procession using new form of fundraising

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening tonight all around town is a new kind of fundraiser for one non-profit.

‘The Night of a Thousand Parties' will help pay for an annual Tucson tradition, the All Souls Procession.

Organizers say every year it grows and costs more to put on the event, but they do not always get new donors. 

They are now working on organizing individual parties, for fundraising to happen.

The total bill for the 2012 All Souls Procession was $74,000, right now the organizers still have $12,000 to pay off.  Most of this is done with donations that have come in from small businesses and individuals and grassroots fundraising.

Other non-profits have done similar party programs, here is how it works. 

People sign up to host a private party, they pick up a DVD to show, then there are handouts that break down how money is raised and how it is spent.

All Souls organizers have ten parties set up so far, all of them private functions, so if you do not know someone hosting one, you can still sign up today.

Or there is the alternative of donating online.

    It may be bad news for a bear spotted several times in an area in Rio Rico the last few weeks, state wildlife workers may have to put it down.  However, they may not have to kill it, IF neighbors change their ways.

    The turkey is put away, except for the leftovers and now it’s time for that other seasonal rite of passage - attacking that holiday shopping list.
