Where does Knickerbockers hold portrait fundraisers?
Knickerbockers serves most of the southern U.S., including Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia
How many tickets do I need to sell?
This number is based on your distance from our office in Johnson City, Tennessee. This helps us guarantee that we’ll be able to cover our photographer’s mileage. (Remember, we pay our photographers through additional print sales, not through your certificate sales!) As an example, an organization within 200 miles of Johnson City would typically need to sell 50 certificates. A group 401 to 500 miles away would need to sell 110.
How does Knickerbockers make money if I keep all the certificate sales money?
Each Certificate Special provides the buyer with set of prints. However, buyers have the chance to purchase additional prints as well. Our profit comes entirely from these additional purchases. This model allows us to support our photographers without infringing on your hard-earned funds!
