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
•     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
•     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!

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.

Coach of the Year

Dear Coach, Hope this email finds you well and enjoying the summer. We are writing today on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR: an independent, kid-friendly sports comedy feature film based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship…without a pool to practice in. Director Dave Stott, who has coached swimming for twenty years, hopes that with this film, we will entertain and inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim. Another goal of this film is to raise awareness about drowning as the leading cause of accidental deaths and to help kids all over the country learn to swim safely. The underdog story has been told before, but not for our sport. This is a movie for swimmers (and would-be swimmers), made by people who know the sport intimately and love it passionately, and we’d love for you to be involved. We wanted to ask you and your team to help spread the word about COACH OF THE YEAR, and get you & you

Is my child ready to swim meets?

We had a coaches discussion on this  - and yes, all of our Elite group swimmers are ready for meets.  Please look at the meet calendar and sign up for the days that you are available.  We will pick events that are appropriate for your swimmer.  We pick events that your child can do well and will build their confidence.  We also believe strongly in placing your child in events that will challenge them.  While we strive for excellence, making a mistake in an event is OK and can be a great learning experience.  Trying and failing is teaches a lot more  about your abilities than not trying at all.
