Inexpensive but impressive apps for non-profit fundraiser?

Royale | Mar 22, 2013 12:43 PM

I'm helping plan a non-profit fundraiser that's being held during cocktail/happy hour (5 pm to 7 pm) on a Saturday at a private home in late April. Luckily we've had the booze donated, and are now trying to figure out what apps to serve. We are trying to make it as inexpensive as possible so more funds go to the non-profit, but also "nice" enough to make it "worth" the $50 suggested donation. Ideally, it would be something (or a few things) that can be served at room temperature, do not require utensils (and if we could even avoid plates, that'd be great too), and require little to no prep or pre-assembly. We were trying to think whether there are any local restaurants that have a dish/dishes that would scale up for this purpose (and might be interested in an in-kind donation...?). We've contacted a few caterers, but being Saturday during wedding season, we didn't have much luck or the price or minimum was too high. And the bulk, frozen app type things from Costco/Sams aren't appealing either. Any other ideas/suggestions?
