Fundraiser Monday December 18 – Let’s order out!

Do you need help planning what’s for lunch or dinner on Monday, December 18th?  In the hustle and bustle of the season, we have the perfect solution!  How about  ordering from Capriotti’s?   Capriotti’s (Smyrna location only) will be donating back to our church 20%.  When you purchase your meal make sure you mention that you are with St. Polycarp to get the 20% donated back.

To make this whole event happen, we need 20 people to commit to order from Capriotti’s on December 18th.
To commit to eat  (you do not order at this time), go to www.groupraise.com/events/46208

Once we have 20 people signed up the 20% fund- raising event will happen and you can simply call in to order or stop in Capriotti’s to order.  Online orders will not be eligible for the 20%.  Tell all your family and friends to mention St. Polycarp on the 18th!
