community night program
We love it when people come together for a great cause. We especially love it when we can help in making enduring connections that grow our community. On select Wednesday nights Bluebird Barbecue partners with a local non-profit organization and donates 10% of the evening's sales. This is our way of supporting the amazing work of organizations in our community that help make Vermont such a special place to live.

HOW COMMUNITY NIGHT WORKS
We have found that the most successful Community Night programs are the result of a combined effort of marketing and outreach by both Bluebird Barbecue and our partner organization.
We ask that the partner organization generate at least 25 guests through their outreach and marketing efforts. If program minimums are met Bluebird Barbecue will donate 10% of the entire evenings (including take-out) sales to the organization as well as 4 $25 gift certificates to Bluebird Barbecue. If the partner organization does not generate at least 25 guests Bluebird Barbecue will donate 4 $25 gift certificates to Bluebird Barbecue. *Bluebird Barbecue pre-scheduled private parties and catering event sales will not be included in total sales donation.
We provide a table at the entrance to the restaurant where you organization can share any materials (postcards, brochures, pictures, information boards, etc) communicating information about your programs. We are also happy to distribute information on our tables - if you would like to create information for the tables please let me know and I will share the sizes and styles that work the best.
The organization is welcome to hang informational signs and posters in the restaurant as long as there is no damage to our walls/facility. Please let us know if you plan on bringing any items so we can best prepare.
Organizers of the program generally arrive between 4.30 - 5.30pm. If you have materials that you would like distributed we suggest a 4pm arrival time. You are also welcome to speak at our daily menu meeting at 4pm to share your mission with our team - we have found that this additional communication makes a big difference!
(Generally supporters of the program tend arrive around 5.30 as supporters depart from work)
- To generate an accurate guest count in support of your organization we will place sign in forms on the tables and our servers will instruct your supporters to sign in. Bluebird Barbecue will be donating an additional $1 to the organization for every supporter who also shares their email address to sign up for our newsletter.
