First of all, thank you for joining our Fatz Friends E-Club. There could be a number of reasons why you are not receiving our E-Club emails. Some of the most commons ones include:

  • Your birthday is more than seven days away. We send our birthday messages about a week before your birthday.
  • Our email may have been filtered for spam. Check your junk mail folder for possible spam filtering. To ensure delivery of future E-Club emails, try adding to your address book.
  • You filled out the registration slip a while ago, but we couldn’t process it. In this case, we invite you to register for our E-club online.
  • You registered a while ago but under a different name and email address than the one you’re using now. If you can provide us with that information, we’ll be glad to look into it.
  • Check the following settings of your email application (i.e. Outlook) or those within your email provider:
    1. Filters – do you have any filters directing incoming emails from to go to another folder?
    2. Forwarding – have you set any forwarding instructions for emails from to go to another email address?
    3. Blocked Address – might be on the Blocked Addresses list. To ensure delivery, add to the Safe Senders list.

There are some positions that younger children may volunteer for such as hosting and assisting with cleanup. We ask that any volunteers performing more strenuous tasks (i.e. pouring hot coffee or carrying heavy dishes of food) be at least 16 years of age.
All marketing communications will reflect a $7 ticket price and children under 6 years of age free. If you charge the $7 price, your group will make $4 profit on each ticket. If you decide to sell some tickets for less than the $7 price, you still owe Fatz $3 per attendee or communicated ticket sold, whichever is greater.
The minimum number of tickets to sell is 75. This minimum has been set to make this a worthwhile and profitable event for all involved parties. There is no maximum number of tickets to sell.
The number of volunteers you’ll need in each position is based on ticket sales and reviewed with you by the restaurant operator.
Fundraising is open to individuals and all non-profit groups and organizations.
It is important for the restaurant to have an estimate of how many attendees are expected so that we can staff and prepare food appropriately. That is why we ask the group contact to call the restaurant two days prior to the event to give an estimated head count. However, if a few people show up at the door without previously purchased tickets, we will do our best to accommodate them.
To order templates, simply inform the restaurant of your interest to support your event with a flyer and tickets and provide the following information: Organization Name, Event Date, Event Time, Ticket Price, Contact Name, Contact Phone/Email.
Absolutely! This is your event and it’s a great idea to try to raise additional funds while you have all your supporters gathered in one location. If you plan to do something like this, please be sure to discuss it with the restaurant in advance of the event.
You owe Fatz $3 per attendee or communicated ticket sold, whichever is greater. If you choose not to charge your volunteers to eat at the event, you still owe Fatz $3 for each of their breakfasts.
We ask that volunteers arrive 45 minutes before the start of the event to meet with the restaurant team and adequately prepare for their respective positions. The breakfast can start at either 7:30 or 8:00 am and end at 10:00 or 10:30 am. Once the breakfast has ended, volunteers will be asked to help clean up so that the employees can prepare the restaurant to open for business as usual.
Please be sure that the contact for your group arrives the day of the event prepared to pay by check that day. Upon completion of the breakfast, you will be asked to write a check for $3 per attendee or communicated ticket sold, whichever is greater, and give it to the restaurant operator before you leave.
Each ticket entitles the bearer to three pancakes, sausage links, fruit cup and a non-alcoholic beverage (coffee, tea, soda – free refills; milk, orange juice, hot tea – one glass).
Ask to speak to an Operating Partner at your local Fatz about organizing a Charity Short Stacks for Big Change Pancake Event.
