The events are easy to arrange and everyone you invite will enjoy food from our innovative menu. Best of all, 20% of sales generated* from supporters of your organization will be donated back to you!

  • Dine in days are done on selected Monday through Thursday business days, and only at The Original Cottage Inn, 512 E. William, Ann Arbor.
  • Please allow a minimum of two weeks advance notice of an event date request. (Subject to availability)
  • We give priority to groups that focus on children, education, and community assistance.
  • An invitation template will be emailed for you to reproduce and cut as many copies as needed. Share the flyer with your supporters, family, and friends to promote the event Please note: Soliciting guests in or around the restaurant during the event is not permitted and may forfeit donation.
  • Have your supporters present their personal invitations to the server before service. Please note, the personal invitation is required for the sale to count towards the donation. A check will be sent in the mail to your organization within 2-3 weeks of the event date.
