In a month I'm chairing an alumni and friends fundraiser for a service corps called City Year. The alumni for this program are still quite young themselves, mostly in their mid-20s, so the cost of the event is only $25-30 dollars (and just $15 for current students). The event will run from 6:30-8:30 pm, and we are promising appetizers and drinks (not dinner). We are expecting about 200 people.
I think we're going to be able to get the drinks donated (or at least at cost), so now I'm hoping to come up with some interesting ideas for food. However, cheap is key. The goal is to spend less than $5 per person (and ideally about $4). We will have folks available that day to either pick things up or do a little (very un-skilled) preparation.
Ideas anyone? Thanks!
(Note: The event will be in the Flatiron, but I'm still not sure if this is the right board to post this message; if it's not, please let me know where it should go).
