Attention Cooks & Party People! TEN Tables is coming up!

Saturday, November 2, 2019, is the Bigelow PTO TEN Tables progressive dinner!

We need Hosts! One Host for Appetizers, One Host for Dessert and a few hosts for dinner.

Please consider opening your home to host the evening appetizer kick off, the dessert party or host a dinner. This event has been an enjoyable PTO fundraiser for many years at Bigelow, a great way for Bigelow caregivers to get together and raise money for our school and our children.

This event needs your help to be successful

TEN Tables is a progressive dinner and is held at several homes in succession on one night. A single course is served at each home. Everyone meets from 6:30-8pm at one house for drinks & light appetizers – perhaps cheese and crackers. There you receive your dinner hosts address. You then leave and go to dinner (with 6-12 other guests) from 8-10pm at your dinner hosts’ house. At 10pm everyone meets at the dessert house for to end the evening.
