Assume that you have been provided with three stands from which to operate, located in the concession area. You have $300 in start-up funds to spend. You must find the necessary baking facilities and staff (volunteers are acceptable).
Before you can get started with your fundraising venture, you must figure out the who, what, where, when, and how of your stand operation. (You already know the why raising money for THON.)
