Fundraisers & ticketed events in the Front Room

Thank you for choosing The Cookery to host your fundraising event! This form is for events that require tickets for entry and discount requests.  If you are a non-profit that would like to utilize The Cookery's Front Room at our regular rates, please fill out our general tour information form HERE.

Due to the numerous fundraising requests we receive every week, we unfortunately cannot support every fundraising request that is submitted (although we wish we could!).  If we can accommodate your needs, we will contact you within 24-48 hours to schedule a tour of the space. Otherwise, our apologies! We are either booked or overcommitted for that month.
