Dining for Dollars

We take great pride in giving back to the communities we call home and would love to help you raise money for your school or non-profit organization. Fundraising events are easy to arrange and best of all, 20% of sales generated by supporters of your organization will be donated back to you!

It’s simple. When guests attend a Dining for Dollars event and mentions or presents a fundraiser flyer on the day of the event, up to 20%* of their dine-in or carryout net sales check will be donated back to your non-profit organization. Dining for Dollars events can be scheduled for any Wednesday at Barbecue Smith.  We’ll help you network to invite your supporters – The more guests who participate, the more money your organization will make!

To inquire, please send us an email at

  • You will be asked to submit a signed W9 form so that sales and donations can be properly tracked.  BarbecueSmith will provide you with a blank W9 form upon request.  Completed and signed W9 forms must be submitted prior to any event.
  • Please ensure up to a four-week lead time to promote your event.  This time to communicate details and invite guests allows for their attendance planning and will ensure a successful fundraiser.  The better you communicate and publicize your event, the more supporters you’ll attract, and the more money we’ll be able to raise together to support your cause!
  • Arrange a day and time to call or meet with us to discuss event logistics.

This is critical to the success of your fundraiser.   Create a flyers, posters, email blasts and social network posts to get the word out to organization members, supporters and friends.


  • The more flyers you distribute, the more will be redeemed on the day of your event, and the more funds we’ll raise.
  • Make sure people know they can dine in the restaurant or take food home via our dedicated Carryout service.
  • Fundraiser guests must mention the name of the fundraiser or present a flyer to their server or Carryout team member to ensure their check is applied to the organization’s give-back funds.
  • Make sure to promote the event for at least two weeks – and optimally four weeks – prior to event day(s).  A day-of-event reminder is another proven best practice to maximize participation on the day of the event.
  • Have fun!  Many organizations will use the event to connect with family, friends and other members of the community.
  • Some organizations decorate—some will even come dressed in team uniforms or spirit-wear.  You can talk to us about ways to bring your event to life!  Fun events take on a life of their own over time, as each one attracts a higher number of supporters to join in the fun.
  • At the end of the event, BarbecueSmith will submit a detailed accounting of the fundraising event to our team.
  • Your organization will receive payment based on the amount of net sales from checks with flyers or mentions: Earned funds will be sent by check to the address listed on the tax form provided. Alternatively, upon request only, we are happy to mail the check to a different address, or arrange to pick up 1-2 weeks after the event takes place.

We look forward to hosting your next fundraiser and raising for your cause!  Eat well.  Do good.
