This section pertains to the Pre-Event stage of the Very Merry Dinner: Approximately how many days/weeks does it take you to identify children and their families to participate? Once you send the initial invite to a child, is two weeks enough time to expect a response from the parent/guardian? How much time do you think your families need to fill out the wishlists? What is the ideal amount of time you think we should allow the family to complete the wishlist before losing access to the invite? Based on last year (2022), do you want more or less spots to distribute to families in your school? Would you like to be able to cancel the link if the parent hasn’t logged in after 1 week?

Please explain your answer: If you received any feedback from families about items they wanted added to the wishlist – please list those items here: If you received any feedback from families about items they wanted removed from the wishlist – please list those items here: This section is to be completed by Schools and pertains to the Event stage of the Very Merry Dinner: Would you like to see the drive through take place on a weeknight Instead of the weekend at the same location?
