prizes. If they are willing to be there to televise your bake sale early

your posts. The viral effect of the internet works wonders to get the
word out in a hurry.

your list and ask them to invite their friends, relatives and neighbors
to your bake sale. Plan ahead so you have enough baked goods for a
really large crowd.
