Last week I attended the national convention for Business & Professional Women/USA. I was especially proud to be a sponsor and exhibitor at the conference. I talked with many attendees about how they fundraise both for BPW and for other causes that they are a part of and shared some of my favorite fundraising recommendations.

World's Finest Chocolate Winner at BPW NationalOne of the fundraising options that I highlighted was World’s Finest Chocolate products.

It was interesting to see people’s reactions when they saw the 5 pound chocolate with almonds bar that was on display!

Vicki Silkwood (right) of Missouri was also quite surprised when she found out that she had won the chocolate in the drawing.

Many attendees saw the name World’s Finest and instantly recognized it. The name and the distinctive white label and silver foil chocolate bars are memorable to anyone who ever sold this candy as a student. WFC has helped generations of students raise funds. In fact they have been doing so since 1949 and over the years they have helped organizations raise over $3 billion!

Several ladies told about how they sold World’s Finest in high school for band trips. Bands are one of the groups that can be particularly successful selling candy because of the large numbers of students and parents usually involved with band. Athletic boosters and PTAs are other types of groups that WFC regularly works well for.

Another attendee told me how she’d always been a great salesperson and regularly sold the most candy for her school. The principal even took her out of class so she could count boxes and tally orders. 😉

If you’d like to find out more about how your group can use World’s Finest Chocolate as a fundraiser, visit this webpage for more information or call 1-888-778-2580.
