Join The Fun & Host a Party For MDE
Be part of the funnest traditions at MDE! The auction parties offer great experiences for children and parents with all proceeds supporting our school. Have a fun party idea for children, adults, or families? Get friends together and help host an event for MDE.
Lots of opportunities exist for hosts. Let us know if you are interested in hosting one of the annual favorites, such as Daddy/Daughter Dance, Night at the Museum, Couples Party, Mom's Night Out or an all-new event. We would like to offer different and exciting children's parties this year. Ideas include sports, bowling, nerf war, painting, movie nights, and spa parties. Events can be for just girls or boys or both.
Q. What is an auction party? It is an event you host for our school as a fundraiser. People sign up at the auction and the ticket price is a donation to the school in order to attend. The cost to participate varies based on the event and the target audience. 100% of the funds raised go to the school.
Q. If I host a party, do I have to pay for it? In a nutshell, yes. However, many people will co‐host a party with two or more individuals to have more fun, share labor, and offset costs. And you can PROCURE (get donations) for your event. Many parties cost less for the hosts than the ticket purchasers because hosts do not buy tickets to their own party.
Q. Am I paid anything to host the party? No. Your efforts to organize and host the party are your volunteer donation to Memorial Drive Elementary. Your costs are managed/reduced by the effectiveness with which you procure and share costs with others.
Q. Do the people coming to the party need to bring anything? Usually everything is included. However, if there is something particular or special that you will not be supplying, we can put a "prerequisite" on the party. For example, if you plan a swimming party, you can say a bathing suit and towel are required. If you are hosting a costume party, you can give guidance on what people should wear.
Q. How many people are invited and how much do I charge for my party? The number of people depends on how big your space is and what you are going to do. You must stipulate a minimum number of signups for the party to occur. We can help determine a price based on party prices from previous years.
Q. What if I want to throw a party but don't have the space? What if I have the space but am not sure what to do? If you have an idea for a party (cooking demo, outdoor dinner, wine tasting) LET US KNOW! And if you have a large kitchen someone can cook in, or a big deck with an outdoor table, or a large entertainment room, LET US KNOW! We will be happy to match people up so they can work together! That is why we are here!
Q. When do I have the party? You can host parties all year long, even the summer! They can be indoor events, outdoor events, at night, in the morning, etc. However, once a date is set it cannot be changed. All events should be held prior to the 2019 auction. Target for prior to December, 2018.
Q. What kind of parties can I host? Anything you, your friends, or your family likes to do! We are dividing the parties into three categories: 1) Adult Only Parties 2) Children Only Parties 3) Family Parties/One adult and kid(s) parties (e.g. father/daughter, mother/son, grandmother/granddaughter)
