Have some fun

Dress up

When was the last time you put on real pants? Just because you are staying in your home, it doesn't mean that you can't glam up the evening by dressing up in something special. Or not. It's your space, feel free to dress down too.

Indulge

No more generic "chicken with seasonal vegetables", you get to decide how to indulge for the evening. Support a local restaurant by ordering a special meal to go, or grab some take away cocktails & craft beer to really enjoy the show. 

Be social

Host a mini gala gathering with another couple (as permitted by social distance guidelines), or set up a Facebook room where you can chat with your friends and colleagues. You can still be social even if we're distant.

Challenge

Set up a challenge with another business, firm or group of friends to match donations, or scratch your competitive itch by bidding for that must have item in the silent auction. A little competition is never a bad thing, just keep it civil :)
