Valentine’s Day Progressive Lunch – Feb 16th, Noon to 3pm

Dog-EatingIt’s time to take out your 2020 calendars and begin filling in your social events – beginning with GBR’s fifth annual Valentine’s Day Progressive Lunch.

Here’s how it works: Every person attending, brings one potluck dish (appetizer, salad, side dish, main course, dessert, and beverage). Each time you go up to the food table, you pay $1 (Come on – it’s a fundraiser after all!) At the beginning of the lunch, only the appetizers will be available, then the salads will be put out on the table, then the side dishes, followed by the main course, and finally the desserts. Beverages will be available throughout the lunch. If you went back for every course only once and had one beverage, your entire lunch could cost as low as $6! Where else can you get a wide variety of delicious home-cooked food for only $6? As you “progress” through lunch, you’re not only getting a good meal and great conversation but you’re also helping GBR’s dogs.

Following the lunch, we’ll play up to five games of Bingo.  Fun prizes. We ask for a monetary donation for each card that you play. All the proceeds of the event are earmarked to fund immunizations and other health care for the dogs coming to us from China (but still in China).

Attendees please coordinate your potluck dish with Martha at this email address: [email protected]  Food categories:  appetizers, salads, veggies/rolls, main dishes and desserts.  Each group also please bring a non-alcoholic beverage to share.
