How do I organize a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit fundraising event?

Setting up your event takes less than 1 minute. All you’ll need to do is:

  1. Choose your favorite Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location

  3. Fill in your group information and estimate how many people will RSVP
  4. Hit Submit. Pretty easy, right?

Make sure to submit your request at least 2 weeks before your event date. Then, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has 7 days to respond to your request. All types of groups can fundraise, from college clubs to charities to PTAs and more!


Once the restaurant confirms your event, it’s time to start promoting! Log into your social media accounts and notify your friends, family, and supporters about your Dickey’s Barbecue Pit fundraising event. Spread your event’s GroupRaise Meal Page, so supporters can RSVP and get an email reminder on the day of the fundraiser. The more people that attend, the more you’ll raise for your organization.


Is this your first time fundraising? No worries, holding a restaurant fundraiser is actually pretty easy. Check out our tips on how to promote and host a successful fundraiser.


Next, your attendees just need to show up during your event’s time slot and tell the restaurant staff they’re dining to support your cause. Your supporters may even be able to have takeout orders count towards the fundraiser (make sure to check with the restaurant location ahead of time). No setup, no teardown, no hassle – just tell everyone to show up hungry. Everyone will be dying to get some tasty Texas-style barbecue!


Finally, within 4-6 weeks after the event, expect a check in the mail for 10-30% of the total sales from your event. What’s more, there’s no limit to the amount of fundraisers you can host with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit – so feel free to request another one!
