‘Dinner & a Movie’ gift basket.

Every year our church has a St. Patrick’s Day dinner and raffle with a silent auction to raise money for the church. This year they asked the high school youth group to make a gift basket to put in the auction. One Wednesday at youth group the kids decided on the theme of their basket: Dinner and a Movie.

Everyone was assigned one thing to bring for the basket the following week. This is what we came up with:

I’m pretty impressed with how well it turned out. Everyone contributed and I’m proud of the kids for participating.

Here’s a list of what could be found in the basket:

  • A $25 gift card to the movie theatre in town
  • Spaghetti and Fetechini noodles
  • Marinara and Alfredo sauces
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • $5 to Kroger (for meat of choice)
  • 1 bottle of Merlot
  • 2 DVDs
  • 2 boxes of popcorn
  • Various kinds of movie theatre candy

This was a fun project and I’m glad it worked out for the youth to help. The basket ended up being a big success at the auction as well. 🙂
