Putting Together a Tropical Smoothie Cafe Fundraising Event

Fundraising with Tropical Smoothie Cafe is just as easy and even more rewarding than sipping some delicious smoothies. It only takes 1 minute to set up! You’ll want to:


  1. Choose your location
  2. Select a date and time range for your fundraiser
  3. Fill out some basic info about your group
  4. Submit your request!



All types of groups can fundraise, from college clubs to charities to PTAs and more! Make sure to submit your request at least 2 weeks before you want to hold the event. After you send your request, the restaurant will respond within 7 days.


Next, spread the word about your event to your group’s supporters, rallying RSVPs. GroupRaise’s Meal Page – a unique web page for your group’s event – makes things even easier by tallying RSVPs for you and even reminding your supporters to stop by on the day of the event. Use flyers, social media, and word of mouth to promote your event and the Meal Page – then simply work up your appetite!


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.


Then, on the day of your fundraiser, enjoy tasty smoothies while supporting your organization at the same time! During your event, your attendees simply have to show up during your time window and mention that they are dining in support of your organization, and a portion of their order will be donated back to your cause. In the weeks following your event, you’ll receive a check from Tropical Smoothie Cafe for 15% of the sales made in the name of your organization.


What’s more, there’s no limit to the amount of fundraisers you can host with Tropical Smoothie Cafe – so go all out if you want!
