The Role of Catering in a Successful Charity Event

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
– William James

Successful charity events should be tailored to elicit maximal giving and foster future loyalty. A well-executed function will impress your guests and put them at ease, driving positive word of mouth and inspiring generosity. It is time-honored wisdom that "It is in giving that we receive." This is certainly born out in fundraising! Successful charity events generally revolve around a meal or other food offering. The more memorable the food and service are, the better! Thus, a good caterer can be the linchpin of a lucrative event. The great news is that placing the menu, logistics and troubleshooting in the experienced hands of a professional caterer is 100% deductible!

Over the years, Caroline's Fine Food has enthusiastically served a broad spectrum of nonprofit and for profit businesses. As leaders in our field, we have shared our expertise with and successfully catered a range of national and regional charities, including:

  • Medical causes
  • Religious groups
  • National political rallies
  • Animal charity
  • Educational fundraisers
  • Sports banquets
  • Entertainment fundraisers
  • Veterans Housing
  • Science Education

Strong reviews and positive word of mouth drive our success! We believe our job is to create and deliver an event that will generate the same for you. Our attention to detail, logistical expertise and culinary excellence are geared to minimize stress and take the guess-work out of the process. Caroline's seasoned event managers work closely with you to create a seamless plan and a menu tailored to your specific needs. They will offer you a menu tasting, create a comprehensive logistical schedule which will include a CAD generated seating plan if needed and present a transparent itemized list of prices. Whether your event calls for a gala sit-down, boxed-lunches, tasting menus, DIY food bars, sandwich platters or an afternoon tea, we offer you invaluable guidance and support. Our chefs love to create memorable and delicious menus that will reflect well on you and generate positive feedback. We once catered an arena event for 700 people with food for 1,000 out of multiple kitchens at two venues simultaneously. We're happy to say that the outcome far exceeded the organization's expectations!  We have a network of trusted partners that can provide additional services like rentals, seating, lighting, flowers, bar and dj solutions. Caroline's carries full liability insurance, enforces strict food-handling processes and offers vegetarian and allergen-free options. We also offer a 10% discount to veterans and first responders.
