Our Community

Community Involvement

The Sawmill Restaurant Group believes that charity support is good business.  We encourage not-for-profit groups to hold their events in our facilities.  In this way, we may improve their bottom line with competitive pricing.  Along with our bid for business, we often provide an in-kind auction item to generate additional funds for their cause.

Fundraising Banquets or Catered Events

From the smallest details to the main event, you need to ensure your event will be a complete success.  The Sawmill Group, known for its excellent cuisine, ambience and service is the perfect company to host or cater your dinner.  We are skilled at creating an atmosphere conducive to a successful fundraiser.

The way we can most effectively support a charity is to offer exceptional rates that would realize significant revenue for your cause.  We can provide plated dinners, buffets or custom menus of any kind, for a reasonable price in almost any venue.

Our quotations for not-for-profit groups often include an additional component that can add to your bottom line.  Depending on the size and scope of your event, we can provide a live auction item with the potential to raise thousands of dollars.  From dinner certificates or private rooms or outdoor barbeques, our donation-in-kind can appeal to any crowd.
Some of the charities we have partnered with in the past include:

Alberta Diabetes Foundation – Annual Golf Tournament
Citadel Theatre – Night of 1000 Dinners
Grant MacEwan Foundation – Mad Hatters Gala
Rotary Club – Champions for Children

Please see our Banquet & Catering Section to familiarize yourself with the menu and venues we offer.    We can also create a quote based on the number of guests and tailored to your budget.

Requests for Gift Certificates

As with most popular dining establishments, we are continually requested to support charities.   If your event includes food service of any kind, please see the section above.   We can best support your request if we are providing service to your organization.
