There is quite a bit of back and forth with restaurant managers to set up these events. They request the GallantFew charity documentation, and it takes some time to arrange a day that works for the restaurant and works for our team, etc. I try to get the ball rolling on this early on, before February, as much as possible. Sometimes meeting with the manager in-person really helps to establish a good relationship, then I can revisit some of the same places the following year to set up another RRR fundraiser and they’re already familiar with us. Also, many restaurants will be willing to offer $5 or $10 gift cards as well, and I collect those ahead of time to auction off at our kickoff party.
