Dining for Dollars

Dining for Dollars is a fun family event and Friends of Palms fundraiser held at sponsoring restaurants. On designated evenings, Palms families can bring a flyer (or an image of the flyer on a mobile device) to the restaurant and the restaurant will donate a percentage of their receipts to Palms.

It's a win-win-win proposition. You get the chance to eat out with friends from Palms. The restaurant gets customers. And Palms gets funds for school programs!

Check out the latest event below. Click the list for restaurant locations and phone numbers. Bring the flyer or a copy on your cell phone. Share it with your friends too!

Note: You may not solicit participation at the restaurant from regular patrons.

Watch this page and the School Calendar for upcoming Dining for Dollars events!

Battle of the Grades

In September 2019 we had a Dining for Dollars contest!

Each grade had its own fundraiser date at the three participating locations (Culver City, Century City and Beverly Hills). Students had to sign in at the restaurant to get credit for their grade level. The grade that earned the most money for the school won a pizza and ice cream party at school for the students who participated. Best of all, Palms got 20% from each fundraiser.

If we repeat this contest, boost your grade's earnings by attending the CPK Dining for Dollars event on the correct night!
