Now that your [recommended] charity is confirmed for one of Boxcar Bar + Arcade’s weekly “Drink For A Cause” events, we’d like to share some basic details to help answer your questions:
On your fundraising date, 15% of sales during operating hours (4pm-close) will be donated to your cause.
Please be sure you’ve replied to your confirmation email with information on how and where to address the donation check.
We’ll place flyers on the bar with your organization’s name and URL and you’re welcome to bring in any additional collateral you might want to leave around the bar or personally distribute on this date.
You’re welcome to hand out information, free food items, swag, etc., to help draw attention to and promote your cause.
We ask that you don’t sell any merchandise, distribute any beverages, host raffles or collect donations on site (but you’re welcome to hand out materials instructing people on how to directly donate to your cause).
If you’d like to inquire about a table reservation for your fundraising date, please click to email our Greensboro or Raleigh staff.
Our bookkeeper writes and distributes donation checks once per month, so you should receive the funds within about one month following the event.
Please contact our Raleigh or Greensboro location if you have any questions.
