Dinner at My House for Our House raises money to support the programs and services of Our House. Generous hosts and chefs throw open their homes and restaurants and prepare dinners ranging from beach house picnics to lavish soirees. Dinners begin in mid-July and run through early March and range in size from six to 100 guests, and tickets are $40 to $175. Dinner at My House for Our House has become an important source of income for Our House and is one of the largest fundraising events of the year. Whether you are a guest or a host, you are simultaneously giving, receiving and enjoying!
Dinner at My House for Our House began in 1993 when a group of Our House supporters came up with the idea of having dinner at each others’ homes in exchange for donations to Our House. The first Dinner Series consisted of only seven dinners and we now have approximately 70 public and 20 private dinners per season.
Public dinners are included in our dinner catalog and anyone can call Our House to purchase a seat. These dinners are open to the public. Private dinners hosts are listed in the catalog but no specific information is mentioned. These hosts invite guests to attend and request a set donation amount. That money is forwarded to Our House after the dinner.
We will begin taking dinner reservations on Monday, June 13.
