I see. Well I guess this was not very well explained (at ALL) on the pledge form. It stated that "Incentive Gifts" were available for people bringing in more donations than were required to play. Nowhere did it mention or infer that 100% of these incentive gifts, and the $100 Gift Certificate (which I was NOT allowed to use on one of the Tee-Sign sponsors as stated on the pledge form, only more schwag) came out of the actual funds I brought in for donations. I would never have accepted it all if I knew my donations paid for it all. If I wanted I could have spent my own $200 dollars to purchase all that schwag to support the SDGA. I told my donators this was for the 2nd Harvest Food Bank, not for $200 in free stuff for myself. Had I known this I would have forgone all incentives offered and just had the checks made directly out to the 2nd Harvest Food Bank.
Maybe I don't understand fully how the fundraising works exactly as I am new to the scene... I understand all the fundraiser discs and clothing has to be paid for somehow, but NOWHERE did it say all my donations would be paying for the "Incentive GIFTS".
Am I wrong in my assumptions? Next time I would like a better explanation of how these functions work when so much money is on the line.

Dana Simmelink turned in $410 in pledges. These pledges paid for;
Dana's entry fee @ $25
Dana's mulligans @ $25
Dana's disc @ $11
Dana's shirt @ $14
Dana's Hoody @ $25
Dana's Grand Prize for bringing in the most money in pledges @ $100 merchandise.
Out of the $410 in pledges Dana brought in, $50 in cash went to pay for Dana's fees and mullies and $150 went to Dana as incentive rewards.
This left $210 cash that was donated to the Food Bank.
