How it Works
Contact Your Local Cal Tort to Schedule
We typically host Spirit Nights on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings between 5pm and 8pm and donate 25% of your guests’ pre-tax sales directly back to your organization. Check with your local store for available dates and to confirm percent donations, click here to find your local Cal Tort. Make sure to book the event one to two months in advance so you have enough time to get the word out. You’ll also be asked to select a secret password for guests to use on the big night.
Promote! Promote! Promote!
The best way to get the word out includes email, flyers (we will make you an official one), group meetings, phone calls (especially the day before and the day of the event), bulletins, newsletters, your group’s website and social channels and of course tell everyone you know.
The Big Night
On the evening of your Spirit Night, ONLY the people who tell the cashier the secret password for your organization will count towards the total dollars spent/raised. Make sure your supporters are all aware of the secret password and even though it may be tempting there is no soliciting of other customers or signage in or near the restaurant allowed.
Show Me The Money
We will donate 25% of your guests’ pre-tax sales to your organization. Two weeks after the event we will email you the total raised and confirm the delivery address for the check which should arrive shortly thereafter.
