WHAT IS A HUNGRY IN RENO RESTAURANT WEEK?
Hungry in Reno Restaurant Week is an event taking place June 1-7, 2020. During this week, participating establishments will offer reduced or fixed price menus and/or specialty items to encourage locals and visitors to try establishments that they haven’t had the opportunity to try before.

This week long event has been created to support and celebrate the food and drink community in the Reno, Sparks, Carson City areas and to encourage locals and visitors to try new places during this week and, hopefully after having an excellent experience, revisit throughout the year.

IS MY SPONSORSHIP TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
While 100% of the net income from this event will be split between the three Hungry Gives Back recipients: Reno IceSTEP2 and Veteran’s Guest House, any direct Hungry in Reno Restaurant Week sponsorships should be considered a business expense and, as such, may be tax deductible. However, we are not tax professionals and would encourage you to contact a tax professional if you have any questions about this topic. Enter Shameless Sponsor Plug — if you are in the market for a CPA, we’d love for you to consider ours: Berge & Company CPA.

Those companies looking to directly donate to a non-profit (and potentially receive a charitable contribution tax deduction) are encouraged to donate directly to one of the three Hungry Gives Back recipients: Reno IceSTEP2 and Veteran’s Guest House. While sponsorship is important to the success of Restaurant Week, we love our charities and would be happy for you to do this in lieu of a sponsorship!

Any businesses that choose to donate to any, some or all of these three charities (at one of the sponsorship level amounts listed above or more) in lieu of a sponsorship will receive digital, print and media recognition as a donor to the event. Please note: to receive this recognition, you will need to notify the charity that your donation orginated from Hungry in Reno Restaurant Week.
