Fundraising Night Overview :Request to host a fundraiser event for your school at your neighborhood bakery-cafe. Fundraisers at Panera are a great way to combine great food, fun and a good cause – your school! At Panera Bread we believe that the Universal Spirit of Bread is Sharing®, and that’s why we’re committed to the communities we serve. Our passion for everything we do spills over to include everyone we share our days with, and we appreciate the opportunity to give back to our friends, neighbors and community. We have developed an easy way to help raise funds for your school. Forget door-to-door sales or scrubbing bumpers – this fundraising idea is much simpler – eat dinner.”
