We are having our social next weekend and are in the last stages of planning. Just wondering a rough timeline of when you did various things throughout the night such as any special dances, food, closing the silent auction, drawing/posting prizes, your thank you's etc. WE have an idea of how we think it should go but wanted to see what others did to compare.
Thanks for your help!

First dance at 10:00
Food out at 11:00
Silent Auction and texas mikey at 12:15 - you want to do the silent auction as late as possible because lots of people leave as soon as it is over.
Any other questions just ask! Good Luck

First dance: 10:00
Silent Auction: midnight
I agree that the later you do the auction the better (as everyone does leave) however, we had our's at a legion so it ended at 1 and bar closed at 12:30.
We had 21 regular prizes and 3 grand prizes which took 25 min to draw and that left 5 min for last call...which really was unfair to our guests who rushed to use their last drink tickets...so I wish we would have started 10-15 min earlier.
I did our thank-you right when I was up there before I drew for prizes (while you have their attention!)
Friends of ours did it the other way where they drew the prize tickets and just posted the winning #'s instead of announcing. We felt like we wanted to see which friends and family won, and it kept people there til the end...if no one came forward we re-drew.

My FI's friend went to a social and the couple made $16000, is that normal??!! Not to pry, but that seems crazy! They must have had lots of super awesome prizes!!

Prizes make somewhat of a difference, but even if you had the best prizes, it all depends on the amount of people that show up.

My one good tip is there is this really cute little restaurant in St.Boniface called Beaujena's. They gave us 20- $10 gift certs, plus $20 for my FI and I!
Please share anywhere that you've gotten donations from!

I forgot about this thread!!
Have you tried Boston Pizza and Fabutan? They are for sures!! BP's does ask for a void ticket, so be sure to have some extas on hand. Have you tried Smitty's, Famous Players, Tan FX, Earls, I had a letter template for social donationa that I'm pretty sure I sent to you originally, have you used it?
