Unique Fundraisers

We work with you to plan a successful event that your patrons will ask for again!

 

Guidelines

Our fundraisers are a great way to help your organization meet it's fundraising goals!
We require a minimum of 250 tickets sold in advance with no more than
10% increase in ticket sales from the final count at 10 days prior to your event to
event day. There are several options including a Drive-Through Barbeque Dinner,

a Barbeque Picnic, and more... As long as you have facilities, our Stone Jug Barbeque
staff will bring everything we need to deliver barbeque goodness to  your supporters.

 

Once you have selected your menu, Stone Jug Barbeque will give you a cost for
the meal, and you determine the ticket price, keeping the profit for your organization.
We offer discounts based on ticket sales for delivery, dervice (containers, utensils, etc.) and labor.

How to get started...

Beginning about 7 weeks in advance of your target date, you will start
looking at menus and selecting dates. We have put together a checklist and timeline
for fundraiser organizers to follow- kind of a How-To resource to make your event a
success.

 

Countdown to SUCCESS...
