Family days are days to celebrate family by inviting all of your employees family members to partake in food, games, and camaraderie, which will remind them of the importance of family and how fortunate we are so they will be inspired to them to make a difference for children with cancer. .

With technology and gaming consoles you can even host a electronic sporting event with Wii tournaments. Charging an entry fee to participate in the tournament and giving the winner a prize such as a gift card or vacation day(s), while the the remaining proceeds would go to the AMS Foundation.
- Silent Auction: Getting your company’s vendors or other local businesses to donate items to be auctioned off. Employees and clients can also assist the auction by baking items or donating to assist in making your auction a hit! Allow for the auction to be held in a central place at your office and allow your employees to bid for a set period of time.
- Change Box/Jar: Displaying a lockable change box or jar with AMS signage and information at a desk or cashier stand can allow for employees and customers to make donations and raise funds for our cause!
