If you’re in need of raising dough for your school, team, college club, church or charity, why not host a fundraiser at the hottest restaurant in town?

This article will get you informed on how Smokey Bones fundraising works.

Organizing Your Smokey Bones Fundraising Event

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

  1. Choose a Smokey Bones location that’s close-by for your group and its supporters
  2. Select a date and time
  3. Fill out some key information about your group, including the expected number of guests
  4. Click Submit. Simple, right?

You’ll need to book at least 2 weeks in advance. Then, the restaurant has 7 days to respond to your request. Please note: Smokey Bones welcomes groups with a W-9 form, which simply shows that your organization pays taxes.


In the weeks and days leading up to your event, just spread the word to your group’s supporters. Make flyers, social media posts, go door-to-door, and share your event’s customized GroupRaise Meal Page so supporters can RSVP and get an email reminder on the day of your event.

Day-of, 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. No setup, no teardown, no hassle – just tell everyone to show up hungry. Everyone will be dying to get a tasty Smokey Bones meal. Takeout orders may count too – check with the restaurant ahead of time to be sure.


Finally, within 4-6 weeks after your fundraiser, Smokey Bones will send your organization a check for 15-20% of the sales from your group. Get this: there’s no limit to the number of Smokey Bones fundraising events you can host. That means there’s unlimited potential to how much your organization could earn!
