CSF/CJSF is Partnering with Panda Express for a Statewide Fundraiser

We wanted to share an exciting opportunity with you. We have partnered with our friends at Panda Express for an incredible fundraising event in February.

On Wednesday, February 7th, at ALL Panda Express locations across California, CSF will receive 20% of event sales from our supporters that dine with Panda on this day. This is a first for Panda Express, and we are thrilled! We are hopeful that we will have a huge amount of support around the event and set a goal of having 75% + of our Chapters participate. Can we make that happen?!?

Panda has made this as simple as possible for us, providing every participating Chapter with resources to ensure a successful event. These include:

  • A sample communication plan (to help communicate most effectively with your members)
  • Promotional items to hand out to students to get them excited
  • Poster & flyer templates to build buzz
  • Panda is also hosting a number of fun contests with great prizes to encourage engagement
  • And… each Chapter Coordinator will have the opportunity to attend a webinar hosted by the Panda team to walk through ‘How to Promote- to Get the Biggest Turnout”

We couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity, and the ability to raise funds to reinvest in our children. Please be on the lookout in the coming weeks for additional information.

Should you have any questions, please let us know!  We hope you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!
