piggy-bankCooking is fun – and fundraising is easy – with the right tools!

Attention schools, sporting groups, hospitals, special interest groups and community and charitable organisations.  Looking for a unique fundraising activity?  Something that’s:

  • More fun than a trivia night!
  • Easier to organise than a chook raffle!
  • Tastier than a chocolate drive!
  • And much more profitable!

A Chef’s Toolbox Fundraiser is easy because we do most of the work!  You simply do the inviting and provide a venue with enough chairs for all guests.

Your commitment:

  • Provide a venue with space for two demo tables and chairs for guests.
  • Sell 20 – 50 tickets at $20 each.  You keep every cent!
  • Distribute the products when they’re delivered.
  • Provide tea/coffee/wine (optional) or ask guests to ‘bring a plate’.

We will:

  • Provide tickets and fliers.
  • Provide all cooking equipment, stoves and cookware.
  • Bring all promotional literature (catalogues, order forms, recipe cards, etc) for use on the evening.
  • Provide a door prize and several prizes for games.
  • Run an interactive cooking demonstration lasting around an hour and a quarter, including a 15-minute interval.
  • Demonstrate two recipes and invite a number of guests to taste at the end.
  • Provide plates and forks.
  • Give recipe cards to all.
  • Give you $200 per new team member from your event that joins The Chef’s Toolbox.
  • Give you 10% of all retail sales.
  • Ensure delivery of all items to a single location with each order individually named and bagged.

It doesn’t get much easier than that!  Contact me for more information on holding your organisation’s Brisbane / Sunshine Coast / Gold Coast Fundraiser.


Help the Victoria bushfire victims

Our sincerest condolences go out to the friends and families of those who have lost their lives in the horrific Victorian bush fires and those whose homes were lost.
The team at The Chefs Toolbox would like to do its part in helping to overcome this tragedy, by supporting the heroic efforts of the men and women of the CFA (Country Fire Authority).
The Chefs Toolbox are proud to announce that we will donate $10 from every set of Tea Towels purchased during the month of February to the CFA in Victoria.
victoria-bushfire-appeal-tea-towelsOur aim is to donate at least $20,000 to CFA Victoria. This can easily be achieved if 4-5 of your work colleagues purchase a set of Tea Towels and place your order with me this month.  My commission will also go towards the fund.
Simply contact me and I will have your order organised without delay.  There will be an $8 delivery charge for the entire order placed by you and your colleagues and your tea towels will be delivered to your place of business within a few days.
We have created a flyer which can be posted on your workplace noticeboard, to encourage your colleagues to help us help the CFA – click here  to view the flyer.
