What’s Going On at Sonic Drive-In?

Accent On Education

For (your town) Schools in 2013-14

 

My name is Billy Wright and I am with Sonic Drive-In restaurant in (the towns listed in the menu bar on left). We are making an effort to become more involved in the local community that has been so generous in their support of our restaurant.  Listed below are a few ideas for school support and fund raising options that can assist your school.

 

Sonic Nights: We would like to have a night for your individual school, designated “(school name) Sonic Night”, where we set a certain predetermined night that your school will receive a donation of 10% of our total sales at Sonic Drive-In (your town) from 5pm-9pm. We would only ask that your school inform the students, families, faculty and staff of the event to insure that “Sonic Night” will be a successful one. We will also have prizes for classes and teachers with me greatest participation.

 

Paper Supplies and Misc. Donations: With advance notice we can provide the following paper products for school events and functions as supplies permit.  We would need to know in advance to place orders. Orders placed by 8am on Mondays and Thursdays will arrive at the restaurant the following day. 

· Sonic Cups

· Napkins

· Straws

· Cup Holders

· Bags and Food Trays

· Crushed Ice

 

Concessions and Vending:  We can sell your concessions department burgers and hot dogs at a discounted price so that your school can resell for student fundraisers.

 

Bottled Water Donations: Bottled water is available to be used by athletic teams, cheerleaders, school bands or any other school organization. With prior notice bottled water can be supplied at no charge with the request that Sonic Drive-In be recognized for the donations.

 

Community Discount Cards:  We have Sonic Community Cards available for your school that can be used as  fundraisers. These cards have a number of discount coupon on the back with a value of over 15 dollars in discounts. We can donate these coupons at no cost to the school and can be sold by your students (average $5 each) with all sales amounts going to your school.
