Welcome to the Downers Grove Area (IL) Branch of AAUW!


January 20th at City Barbeque

People love good BBQ, as shown by the success of past fundraisers at City Barbeque! Place a group order and we will get to our minimum of $500 in no time! Enjoy a cozy barbecue dinner during the coldest days of winter. Curbside delivery is available.

Following are the rules (many of which are also on the the flyer).

•   Our code for this fundraiser is FundA at the online order link

•   For an online order to count toward our fundraiser, you must apply code FundA prior to checkout online or in the City BBQ app.

•   Online orders must be fulfilled—i.e. picked up or delivered—on January 20th in order to be eligible: orders placed on the date of our fundraiser for fulfillment at a later date will not count toward your sales. (Orders can, however, be placed in advance for fulfillment on our fundraiser date.)

•   Online orders must be placed at City Barbeque Downers Grove to be eligible: orders placed using your code at any other location will not count toward your sales.

•   If ordering in person, tell the cashier it is for the AAUW fundraiser or present the flyer.

•   You may not pass out or distribute flyers on City Barbeque property.

•   Total fundraising proceeds must be $500 or more to receive your 20% of the proceeds from all eligible sales.
