Plus our Walk-In Events and Fundraisers are super popular on location! These work best in large recreation centers, multi-purpose rooms and senior centers, etc… Chef It Up 2 Go will conduct a 2.5 hour event where guests can just stop by the location of event (and for a very inexpensive amount) make whatever we have planned on the menu that we will wrap up for them to bring home and enjoy. It’s a great way for your school or organization to raise money and all they have to do is provide the tables, chairs and location and let us provide the rest! Chef It Up 2 Go runs the event then gives back 50% of the proceeds towards the fundraiser! Win win for all! Here are some of the most popular Walk-In Event/Fundraiser Options
