A gallon of Manhattans!

Hi. I'm planning a picnic for 30 in a park where they will be screening the Woody Allen classic MANHATTAN. I have 2 1 gallon coolers, 2 1 liter bottles of Bulleit Rye, a bottle of Dolin Vermouth and I plan to buy some bitters. I'm thinking of mixing it all in a pitcher and cooling it in the fridge before pouring it into the cooler. I'll have ice in the other cooler. Anyone have advice on the proportions? Also, lots of my guests will not be regular Manhattan drinkers. That said, should I cut up some ripe strawberries and toss them into the cooler? Is that a sin? Should I have orange peels on hand?
