Recommend a cheap projector

My daughter is graduating this year, and my wife put together a slide show that she'd like to project on the side of our house during her party.
I do not have any knowledge of what would work best for this. My budget is $300. I don't want to go much higher because I doubt I'll ever use it again.
Thank you for any thoughts.

Why don't you just rent one and save yourself some money? Surely there's someplace nearby that has one for rent.

I decided to take a chance. My identity will probably get stolen, but I bought this:

Now for a cheap screen.
