We only offer social promotions via Twitter and Facebook. The social promotions we offer vary depending on the level of sponsorship minimum that your restaurant commits to donating.

You will receive promotional materials approximately two weeks prior to the start of Treat Yourself.



Be sure to mention “PAWS Chicago Treat Yourself” to your server upon arriving.



The need for a reservation will vary between businesses, but our OpenTable event page will be available soon to make a reservation.



The fundraising methods will vary between businesses, but if you would like to make a direct donation, please click here.

By making the commitment, PAWS Chicago will be providing you with certain promotional benefits applicable to that level, so participating businesses are expected to meet their fundraising commitment.  What many businesses will do, should their fundraising fall short of the level, is to donate the balance themselves.  We are committed to helping you in any way we can to reach your fundraising goals and are available to help plan to ensure you are set up for success! Partners are also more than welcome to exceed their fundraising goals. Every dollar helps save more homeless pets!  If you are concerned that you are unable to reach the minimum, we recommend you select a lower level to begin.  You can always raise it later!

If you exceed your fundraising goal, you will receive all benefits associated with that amount after August 30th. 



We are committed to helping you promote the program and will provide all participants with a file filled with customizable pieces where you can add your logo, name, specific fundraising item/special, etc. We will provide all participants with a poster to display in your place of business during the week but are unable to provide additional print materials. We do this to keep our event expenses down so that more funds raised will go towards supporting our animals.

Each business will create their own fundraisers to support PAWS Chicago throughout the duration of Treat Yourself. Once the list of restaurants is announced, please refer to each participating restaurant for more information.
