Therefore you do not need to worry about the meals as our event coordinators will bring your ideas to life and give you the perfect menu to impress all the attendees.


At Corky’s, we are keen on the budget limitations of the event plus the goal our client aims to achieve. We help plan to ensure everything remains organized. With a well-understood budget, we can stick to the style and theme of the event in the menus we offer.

Most clients assume that a sit-down dinner is more expensive than a buffet. However, the money spent on our services depends on the type of meal served and how we give the service. Among the great tips for hosting charity events is that if you do not plan to offer a full meal, scheduling the party during the non-standard time for meals may work best for you.


The menu depends on the event type and the specific client needs. There are catering services that are very rigid in terms of their menu options and choices. However, at Corky’s Catering, we are keen on your needs.

We customize our plan menus based on the style of the nonprofit event. We also give our clients sample menus to help them decide on the ideal one for the event. We are keen to check on meals that suit attendees with allergies and the foods and drinks that fit the occasion.

Presentation and food portions

At Corky’s Catering, we give value for food and portion sizes. We also ensure the presentation is appealing and fits the high standard accorded nonprofit events. No guest wants to eat from a plate that looks sloppy with a small serving.

We deliver quality with well-set tables. Our services offer high-quality dishes, silverware, and napkins. We pride ourselves on the best salad dressings and butter dishes with salt and pepper. Corky’s ensures you get the best by offering their fine linens and china to give you the most satisfactory dining experience. We make sure everything meets and exceeds your expectations. quality


If you are new to using nonprofit event catering services, we can help you sample our menus to give you a taste of what you should expect. We can also give you a couple of catering menu ideas if you are still undecided about what you want to offer your guests.


A catering company needs to follow the theme of an event. At Corky’s Catering, we sync the subject matter to the vision of the fundraising event. We understand the effect it has on the attendees. We also know how it lifts their spirits to give their best as they participate. We offer a variety of themed menus to go in line with your vision.

Wait staff

Corky’s Catering prides itself in offering good food and service at events. We understand that staying behind schedule when offering service can jeopardize the event’s vision. We are keen to put a favorable ratio between the guests and servers. If it is a sit-down dinner, we prefer to have one server for a table of eight to 10 attendees.

We also ensure we balance the number of bartenders and waiters for effective service throughout the party. Our waitstaff also has attires suitable to the event.

Party planners

We have event planners and coordinators who help relieve your burden to organize everything. We can help plan the ideal menu, the best venue, decorations, music, and photography.

All you may need to do is air your expectations for the event and what you need us to supply. Corky’s can take care of everything. We can also do a menu board that describes the meals and ingredients of the day.
