A friend of mine in Hoboken was looking for some advice. Each year they do a fundraiser for her kids school (HoLa, a dual language charter school). With the hurricane, the school took a ton of damage, and have been in temporary locations, so this year's fundraisier is even more important.
the event traditionally has local restaurants cook food and donate it for the event, but with the storm, she's not sure if they will be able, or even if she should be asking. So she started thinking about going outside the local area or coming up with other ideas that might work. She was even thinking of contacting a few people she knows out of the country to see if she could get their "local" foods shipped in.
The event space needs everything to come already prepared - any "outside the box" ideas?
