Help! I'm having 150 people over how much food do I buy?

Hi everyone!
So saturday night I'm hosting a fundraiser and 150 people have signed up to go. I'm going to costco tonight to buy food, but it's really hard for me to conceptualize how much to get. I'm thinking cheese, dips, italian meats—and anything else I can get my hands on. Is there a rule of thumb? It's not dinner, but it is from 7-10. Is four cases of wine enough? Also I'm going to get beer (anythoughts on how much)? Thank you in advance! Perhaps you can read the panic between the lines of my post!
