Can we promote at the restaurant? Are there marketing materials available for my organization?
All promotion must happen before the event and not on the restaurant premis. Unfortunately, we will be unable to host donation jars, additional organization information, in store flyers, or decorations. Our team will provide you with a full-page flyer, coupon pdf, and facebook image to be used by your organization to promote the fundraising event in advance. This will be provided via email following the confirmation of your scheduled event.
What do customers have to do for their purchase to count toward our fundraiser?
To ensure that the purchase of fundraiser guests is accounted for in the fundraising totals, guests must present, either in printed or digital form, an official event flyer/coupon at the time of payment. A minimum of $100 in sales must be attributed to the fundraiser ($100 sales * 20% = $20 donation) in order to receive the proceeds from your event.
