Raising money for the art club
Our university art club is raising money for our activities this year. We need money for trips to museums. We usually go to art museums four times a year. We choose a different museum each time, and we see a lot of different kinds of art. It’s really interesting.
Today is one of our big fundraising days. Members of our club are doing different things to raise money. The first-year students are washing cars in the park downtown. People pay us ten dollars for each car. It’s nice and sunny today, so they’re having fun!
The second-year students are selling muffins, brownies, and cookies in the student center at the university. Cookies and brownies are two dollars each, and muffins are three dollars. Oh, and they’re selling coffee, too. I think it only costs one dollar.
Third-year and fourth-year students are raising money in the park, too. They’re drawing pictures of people. It only takes about fifteen minutes to draw a person’s picture. For twenty dollars, you can have a black-and-white picture. Or for twenty-five dollars, you can get a picture in color.
We usually raise about six hundred dollars on our fundraising day. Raising money is hard work, but it’s fun, too.
