Yeah, I suppose I need to be careful how I state that (realizing revenue vs. making money vs. making a profit, etc.). I obviously know nothing about their actual finances.

But money seems to definitely be coming into the organization if their sponsorship page is to be believed:

SALTY DAWG RALLY SPONSORS | Salty Dawg Rally

Sponsorship Levels:

The SDR already has a strong list of sponsors but more are always welcome. To help designate sponsor levels five categories have been established.

Admiral – $1500 or more
Captain – $1000
Commander – $750
Lieutenant – $500
Ensign – $250
On that page you can see 10 Admiral level sponsors (I assume this means at least $15K). Again whether this is all only goods/services value or cash or a combo - who knows? But I have to assume that some amount of cash is involved in all of this since not all the sponsors are necessarily offering goods and/or services.
