Celebrate Summer @ Sonic
My name is Billy Wright and I am with Sonic Drive-In restaurant in the towns listed in the menu bar. 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 Guest Car Hop: We would like to have a day for your individual school, designated “(school name) Sonic Carhop for Tips fundraiser”, where we set a certain predetermined day or night that one of the organizations at your school (cheerleaders, football team, teachers, etc.) will carhop (waiter) and deliver orders to the cars for tips that will go to the organization or school. We would only ask that your school inform the students, families, faculty and staff of the event to insure that “Car Hop for Tips” will be a successful one.
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, etc..
Sonic Community Discount Cards: We will donate these discount cards to your school (at no charge) that your students can sell as a fundraiser. These cards are the size of a credit card and have 10 separate peal off discounts on the reverse side and are normally sold for $5 each with all funds received going to the school.
Sporting Events: We have experienced excellent results at sporting events during half time with school fundraisers. We can supply “Food For a Year” coupons for people that make a donation to the school that qualifies them to participate to win these coupons. Examples are: Football-Kicking a field goal, Basketball-Making a half court shot, Soccer-Kicking a goal from mid field, or many other competitions. We also have Sonic mascots that can appear during sporting events with discount coupons distributed.

Teachers, register your projects on DonorsChoose.org to ensure your project is reviewed in time to be posted when voting begins. You can even upload your project now for individual donations before voting begins. During September, anyone can come to the website and vote for their favorite teacher's classroom project.
