Occasionally, a rush of blood, a ferocious display of risk, perhaps even a hint of arrogance will lead a punter to back against a roaring favorite like Black Caviar? But you should never back against a chocolate drive to achieve fundraising success.
So what does Black Caviar have to do with a chocolate drive? Both have stunning success, draw a decent crowd together and are universally loved. There are other valuable fundraisers, the reason this one is the favorite, is because the track record in the Club Cash Generating Stakes is unmistakably awesome!
Decide on your provider, distribute, market, sell, collect and count… it is a very simple process. Due diligence and accurate record keeping will ensure this fundraiser is a great benefit to your club. Chocolate drives are popular because they work.
What is Required?

Risks to Consider
Whilst it is a great fundraiser there are risks that need to be taken into account.
Within the school system there has been a reduction in chocolate drives due to the focus on healthy products only being sold. Clubs should ensure members are ok with selling chocolates before committing the club community to the fundraiser.
