The children in our group are under 16 years of age, can they still help as volunteers?

There are some positions that younger children may volunteer for such as hosting and assisting with cleanup. We ask that any volunteers performing more strenuous tasks (i.e. pouring hot coffee or carrying heavy dishes of food) be at least 16 years of age.

What fundraising programs does Fatz have to offer our community?

Fatz has 3 fundraising opportunities – The Short Stacks for Big Change Pancake Breakfast, the Chicken For Charity lunch/dinner, or our Spirit Night.

Our Pancake Breakfast and Chicken for Charity events are ticketed events where the organization heading up the fundraiser promotes and sells tickets to an event on a specified day and time. Fatz will help with the food, but volunteers are needed from the organization to help execute the event.

Our newest fundraiser, the Spirit Night, requires no volunteer participation. This option relies on the organization’s ability to promote their event and drive their supporters into a Fatz restaurant on a specific date. A portion of the sales driven into the event by the organization will be donated back.

We would like to have a “child’s price” for attendees under a certain age. Can we have tickets with varying prices?

All of our fundraising materials will reflect an adult and a child’s ticket price. Half of that sales price will be paid to Fatz upon completion of the fundraiser. The other half will stay with the organization.

Are there a minimum and maximum number of tickets to sell?

The minimum number of tickets to sell is 75. This minimum has been set to make this a worthwhile and profitable event for all involved parties. There is no maximum number of tickets to sell.

Who is eligible for a fundraiser?

Fundraising is open to all non-profit groups and organizations. A copy of the organization’s 501-C3 certificate will be requested.

Does Fatz allow walk-ins or must all tickets be pre-sold?

It is important for the restaurant to have an estimate of how many attendees are expected so that we can staff and prepare food appropriately. That is why we ask the group contact to call the restaurant two days prior to the event to give an estimated head count. However, if a few people show up at the door without previously purchased tickets, we will do our best to accommodate them.

How do I order fundraising materials from Fatz?

To order materials, simply inform the restaurant of your interest to support your event with a flyer and tickets and provide the following information: Organization Name, Event Date, Event Time, Contact Name, Contact Phone/Email.

How do I learn more about the Fatz fundraising programs?

Email us at with your questions and we’ll be happy to help you plan your event.

Would Fatz be interested in sponsoring my event?

Ask to speak to an Operating Partner at your local Fatz about organizing a Charity Short Stacks for Big Change Pancake Event.

How does the spirit night fundraiser work?

The Spirit Night fundraiser is designed to be a simple, turn-key opportunity for the organization to earn money for their cause. Fatz will provide the organization with a PDF of a flyer that will be provided to the organization’s supporters through whatever means they have available to them – newsletter, email, printed, etc. The supporters will bring that flyer into the restaurant on the evening of their event and hand it to their server. A portion of each check dining with Fatz during the promoted event time with a flyer, will be donated back to the organization. There is no need for volunteers or any labor other than promotion of the event from the organization.

What food and beverages are included for the price of a ticket?

At a Pancake Breakfast, each ticket will be valid for a pancake breakfast with sausage and cut fruit with a non-alcoholic beverage. At a Chicken for Charity event, the tickets are valid for a dinner consisting of Calabash Chicken, mashed potatoes, a Poppy Seed Roll and a cookie served with a non-alcholic beverage.

How do we pay Fatz their portion of the ticket price?

Please be sure that the contact for your group arrives the day of the event prepared to pay by check that day. Upon completion of the breakfast, you will be asked to write a check for the total amount owed to Fatz based on ticket sales or attendees, whichever is greater.

What is the time frame for the volunteers?

We ask that volunteers arrive 45 minutes before the start of the event to meet with the restaurant team and adequately prepare for their respective positions. The breakfast can start at either 7:30 or 8:00 am and end at 10:00 or 10:30 am. Once the breakfast has ended, volunteers will be asked to help clean up so that the employees can prepare the restaurant to open for business as usual.

Can we raise additional funds by holding a small auction or raffle at our breakfast?

Absolutely! This is your event and it’s a great idea to try to raise additional funds while you have all your supporters gathered in one location. If you plan to do something like this, please be sure to discuss it with the restaurant in advance of the event.
