Fundraising with City Barbeque!
Thank you for choosing to fundraise with City Barbeque! Here are a few ground rules to remind you
of how our program works:
•     City Barbeque holds fundraising events for non-profit organizations only. We’ll need your
group’s current tax ID number in order to schedule your event.
•     For you to receive credit for a sale, a guest must turn in a copy of your group’s flyer or
show the cashier your online fundraiser barcode from his or her mobile device when making a
purchase.
•     You may not pass out or distribute flyers on City Barbeque property.
•     In order to receive your percentage of the proceeds from your group’s eligible sales, your
total fundraising proceeds must be $25 or more—City Barbeque can’t issue donation checks for less
than $25 due to administrative costs. Checks will be mailed out within three weeks of your
fundraiser.
•     The percentage of sales you will receive is based on food, beverage, and bottled sauce sales.
Gift card or tee shirt purchases are not included in this total, nor is sales tax.

Here are some tips on promoting your fundraiser:
•     Print the flyer and distribute to your friends, family, colleagues, etc.
•     Email the flyer to your contacts—we’ve provided it in both JPEG and PDF formats, so you can
either insert the JPEG as an image in the body of your email or can attach the PDF flyer, asking
them to print and distribute.
•     Utilize social media! We’ve provided images for you to use online to get the word out. These
images do not have specific information about your fundraising day, just the address of the
restaurant, so be sure to include those details in the text of your post. Remember to always
include the date of your fundraiser when communicating it out to your friends!
A few example social media posts for you:
•     XYZ Organization is having a Fundraiser on XYZ date! Come out and show your support while
enjoying some ‘que, and we will get 25% of the sales back!
•     XYZ Organization is having a Fundraiser on XYZ date! All you have to do is eat BBQ, and we
get 25% back.
•     XYZ Organization is having a Fundraiser at City Barbeque! Be sure to scan the barcode on XYZ
date and we will receive 25% back!
•     Come out for our fundraiser on XYZ date. Please share this post with your friends!

Team T-shirt Orders

Parents you may order a t-shirt for yourself by reply email with your size.  They are $10 for parents (we already have swimmers sizes and there is no charge for swimmers tees) So! Yours truly has finally gotten it together and figured out a t-shirt for the season.  I was having extreme difficulty settling on something that captured how I felt about all the greatness going on in our program and the amazing loyalty we have from our families.  Finally we have something - it is at the printer and should be to us in a week or so.  They will not begin printing until next week, so parents can order shirts (kids get them as part of your fees).  Just let me know what size you want, payment is due to the boosters on receipt of the shirt.  This is a white 100% cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with "Buckeye Proud" on the back and our team logo on the front left chest.   Orders are due Tuesday morning.

Extra T-Shirts

The Pollock Family has donated about 60 t-shirts sporting the new team logo to our Booster Club. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes. Each family will have their chance to pick ONE shirt on Monday or Tuesday at practice. On Wednesday, any shirts remaining will be available to anyone. A donation to the booster club for your shirt is optional. The kids are now receiving their team t-shirts that were made exclusively for kids and coaches. Kast-A-Way has not yet printed our red t-shirts, if you would like to order one I suggest you call today. These shirts are being printed on a light weight t-shirt from Sport Tek.
