Open Thanksgiving!

Every year I host an open Thanksgiving. Anyone who needs a place to eat dinner and/or hangout on Thanksgiving is welcome to come. In past years the estimated turnout has been 50-70 people and was becoming a bit much for my tiny apartment to handle so JP has volunteered to let us host at his place. 
We start at 3pm and play boardgames, watch football, drink and just generally get to know each other.  Last year we had at least three turkeys and a ham. It was amazing. One of the turkeys was wrapped in bacon, or maybe it was the ham. 
Dinner is normally ready around 6-7pm. On the menu this year: Three Turkeys, a ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts,  gravy, three different types of rolls, sweet potatoes, cornbread, cranberries, mac and cheese, apple pie and pumpkin pie. 
After dinner we play games, drink, drink, play more games and just have a great time. 
The  first year we tried to make this a potluck, and not very many people brought anything. We pretty much only had the basics Joe and I provided and we ran out of food. Last year, the second year, I asked for a donation or a side. I got around $40 in donations and so many pies that I was sending frozen pies home with people for weeks. But an overwhelming amount of people did not donate or bring anything. So this year to RSVP you have three options:
Donate: dinner costs between $4-7 each personhttps://www.wepay.com/donations/orphan-thanksgiving
Bring something:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApEgrm4a2vnSdElKS1NQUHZoWXB4MnRhcWtnRHhsVFE
Email me and let me know that you want to come but can't donate or bring anything:[masked]

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
