Normally you’ll have to book a meal at least two weeks in advance. Tip: The bolded dates mean they are open for fundraisers.  


You will also be able to select the time range for your event on this page.


Once you’ve decided the date, click Next.


Estimated Attendance:

Here you’ll have to provide an approximate number of attendees. This will assist Oberweis and you in determining your meal’s expectations.


The Estimated Fundraising Return will be retrieved once you have added the estimated number of participants.



Make sure you have read the Oberweis Policies before choosing the Review option.


Share it — Everywhere!

You can begin promoting your fundraising event after Oberweis has confirmed it. Share information on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, then immediately inform your friends and family so they can invite their network too.


Enjoy the Meal & Enjoy your Donation:

Finally, on the event day, all you have to do is to enjoy a meal with your supporters, and 20% of the orders will be given back to your cause.
