Friends of the Bid
It is common for a bid committee to recruit people from all over to assist in bidding, financially, as help or simply by publicly supporting the bid. Such groups are often called "Friends of the Bid" or, sometime, names which fit in to the bid theme (such as "Aldermen" for one Chicago bid).
Friends generally make a much higher contribution than pre-supporters (typically $100 compared with $20). They will also frequently do things help man bid tables or, if local, help buy supplies for a bid party.
A successful bid will typically get one to two hundred Friends.
