Guidelines for Hosting a Dinner

• Please call us at 507-288-7470 and ask for the House Manager to reserve a date.

• Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday are the preferred evenings to host a dinner although other days of the week may be considered.

• Dinner is served at 6 p.m.

• Dinners are rotated between our two houses. If you are serving at the 705 House, plan on a count of 85-90 people. If you are at the 724 House, the count would be 56-70 people. This number includes guests and caregivers.

• Gift of Life will provide eating utensils, plates, cups, napkins, coffee, and lemonade.

• The group hosting the dinner is expected to set-up, serve, and clean-up.

• Leftovers are welcome and may be stored in the kitchen in the space labeled “House” refrigerator for guests to enjoy the next day.


• To protect the health of our guests, if a volunteer is experiencing a cold, sore throat, or other illness, we ask that they not participate.
