Fundraising Event Ideas for Any Organization

City Bonfires recently sponsored the s’mores buffet station at an outdoor fundraising event for The Light Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides young people with unique experiences that ignite their passion & purpose. It was co-founded by 3-time Super Bowl Champion Matt Light and his wife, Susie Light, to use the great outdoors to cultivate young, confident leaders. The event was a success, and everyone loved all of the different flavored cookies, sauces/spreads (like lemon curd and Nutella®), and other unique s’mores ingredients.

Fall S’mores Buffet Events for Breweries, Bars, Wineries, & Restaurants

Fall is one of the best times to get customers together outside around a few tabletop fire bowls, like City Bonfires. You can make an inviting s’mores picnic table buffet that will get everyone to come over and invite their friends, like Frey’s Brewery. This working farm brewery is located in Mount Airy, Maryland. It holds “Firepits and Flannels” events in the fall to take advantage of the crisp nights and allow everyone to enjoy the lower temps as they indulge in their farmhouse-made lagers and ales.
