BBQ Trailer Proposal & Sponsorship

Cops Against Cancer is initiating capital campaign to raise monies for a mobile catering trailer. This trailer design is exclusive to fundraise. The campaign will involve the purchase of a commercial concessions trailer, Ole Hickory rotisserie commercial BBQ Smoker and state mandated commercial food prep equipment and appliances.  

If you are intersted in further discussing a specific level of sponsorship and make a donation, please contact Craig Phinney, at Cops Against Cancer (515) 783-9833


MISSION OF REQUEST:
To assist cancer patients and their families raise money to cover the cost of treatment, care, and other needs during their cancer journey. Our goal is to purchase a commercial BBQ trailer, commercial food smoker, and mandated commercial food prep equipment, designed exclusively to fundraise and a critical resource for our clients. This trailer will provide fundraising meals for cancer families seeking financial assistance from our organization. 

HOW IT WORKS:
Our team responds by preparing a fundraising dinner in connection with a community hall, VFW, or church. We assist the client with the marketing and coordinating their event. Proceeds cover the initial minimal catering expenses (<$500.00) of the Cops Against Cancer organization & remaining proceeds goes directly to the cancer family. This project will not affect other cancer clients requests, who are requesting lesser amounts of assistance. 

IMPACT ON PATIENTS:
Based on our estimates, we can help four additional families a month or additional $15,000 in funding, and generate an estimated $135,000 in additional client funding each year. We provide our clients a low-cost alternative and a huge return on their financial request. This pivotal resource is similar to a Habit for Humanity trailer or Food Banks of Iowa pantry truck.  

The ideal fundraiser is a cancer family contacting Cops Against Cancer for financial assistance with a request of more than $1,000.00. At present, we will provide up to $500.00 in financial and resource assistance to a client’s financial request. This dollar amount is also dependent if there is funding available to finance the client’s request. The past two years, our organization has suspended client funding due to depleted funds. The demand for assistance was more than the availability of funds. 

WHAT IT WILL COST:
At this time we are seeking investors for this project. At present, we’ve raised $9,000. One of the largest donations to date came from the Des Moines Police Protection and Burial Association for $7,500. Our organization would like to see other departments become involved in helping cancer families in their community by donation as much as the Police Unions, Police Benevolent or Associations can afford. We’d like to see your department’s shield/logo on the side of the trailer showing the state your support to fight against cancer.

EXPANDING OUR REACH:
Finally, we are also working with law enforcement agencies from across the State of Iowa on a two-tier project. The purpose of this collaboration is to build a stronger alliance with the departments and cancer families in their communities. This partnership would create eight “districts” across the state, with a law enforcement representative appointed by the Cops Against Cancer organization in each of the eight districts. The representative is the promoter, organizer, and liaison between the individual agencies in those districts and the Cops Against Cancer organization. 

This two-tier project will involve:
An agency and their community hosting a BBQ fundraiser to showcase not only the organization but the partnership between the agency and the cancer community within their respected jurisdictions. Proceeds from these events benefit the Cops Against Cancer Client Care programs. 

Departments are receiving training from our organization in promoting our organization in their communities identifying and informing potential clients in their communities. 

Departments are screening potential clients to identify specific needs and forward the information onto our organization for additional review. The departments also play a critical role in personally making the direct donation contact in delivering of our resources and assistance to the client.
