Buffalo Restaurant Pass Donations

We’d like to invite you to participate in the 2011 edition of The Buffalo Restaurant Pass, a raffle prize that offers you the unique opportunity to creatively market your restaurant while supporting a wonderful cause: life-saving cancer research. Participation is as simple as a gift-certificate donation!

The winner of The Buffalo Restaurant Pass raffle prize receives 26 gift certificates to local restaurants. It’s a slice of heaven for any ‘foodie’ and we market the prize as “Dinner for Two for a Year.” All participants in this year's The Dude Hates Cancer will have the opportunity to sell the tickets as part of our fundraising competition -- the money they raise through ticket sales counts toward the fundraising total for the event -- and there's also an additional incentive: the individual that sells the winning ticket will receive their very own ‘Restaurant Pass,’ a prize of 13 restaurant gift certificates.

We hope you’ll consider donating a gift certificate to one or both of these prizes. In return, you will receive the following benefits:

  • Your restaurant will be listed (with a link to your website) on The Buffalo Restaurant Pass page on this site (Note: We’ll be promoting this page both on the site and through various social media sites as soon as we have a complete list of gift certificates.)
  • Your restaurant will also be listed on printouts that we’ll be distributing to all participants as a ticket-selling tool.
  • We'll promote your restaurant's participation in the event in a Facebook post to all of our followers, complete with link to your website and Facebook page (if available)
  • Tax benefits: Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.

The raffle drawing will be held at our main event (date TBD)

Raffle tickets will be priced as follows:

1 ticket for $5 3 tickets for $10 7 tickets for $20

Additional notes about donations:

  • All donations must be $50 or more in value and enough to cover dinner for two.
  • Gift certificate donations should be post-dated to expire one-year after the drawing date
  • If, at the time of your donation, we've receive more than the requisite number of gift certificates, we may choose to use your donation towards another prize, such as in our silent auction or fundraising competition.
