• Tickets to professional sports games – i.e., Washington Redskins, Washington Capitals, Washington Nationals, Washington Wizards, Baltimore Oreoles, etc.
• Merchandise from professional sports teams – clothing and signed footballs, baseballs, hockey pucks, etc.
• Restaurant Gift Certificates — gift certificates (ranging from $25 to $100 or more) from restaurants throughout the DC metro area

How to be a prize donor?
• Donate a prize (i.e., a gift certificate from a favorite restaurant)
• If you’re a co-op team, ask your vendors to support your team with contributions of prizes (ask your marketing or meetings/training departments for assistance)
• Make a modest cash donation (tax deductible) to CDF that can be used for purchasing gift certificates and other items for prizes.
