The Very Merry 1st Annual H3 Happy Holiday Party and Food Drive!

Online sales are now closed. Tix are available at the door. I look forward to seeing everyone tonight! Thanks!

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if this holiday, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if this holiday, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

The holidays... a time of joy, charity and hope. Or, more often, long retail lines and stressful family events. You can take a break from all that for a little bit and join your meetup friends (or meet new ones) at our annual holiday party!

Starting at 8 PM, you can enjoy a buffet of various foods:

Menu: Our food selections will include appetizers such as Shrimp Lejon, risotto fritter, prime rib egg rolls, crusted ravioli as well as pepperoni and cheese platters, mixed green salad and a seasonal fruit selections with yogurt dipping sauces. Other selections include chicken tenders with various sauces, meatballs (with rolls), and sausage and peppers (with rolls). Assorted cookies will also be provided for dessert, though some of our members may bring additional desserts.

Enjoy lots of great company while listening to a variety of holiday themed songs. Later in the evening we'll switch to the dance tunes and so that those of you who like to strut your stuff on the dance floor can get your groove on (you know who you are....Fran).

In keeping with the season of giving, this event will also be a food drive. Bring canned vegetables, meats, soups and more to donate for those less fortunate. Food items will be passed on to Philabundance. And every food item you bring gives you more chances to win...

Yes, there will be many raffle winners this night... you get one ticket when you arrive and another ticket for each food item you bring... so the more you give the more chances you have to get.

We'll be raffling off Amazon Gift Cards and other fun prizes!

Raffle Prizes: We are going to be offering a variety of prizes, including an Amazon.com gift card, restaurant gift cards and gift certificates. There also may be some more surprises coming your way. Remember - the more food items you donate the more chances you have to win!

So come on down... enjoy the holidays with people you like to meet up with!

There will be a $10 charge to cover the buffet and prizes.

(For those who wish to make a holiday treat to share, feel free to do so!)

    Our annual holiday party was a success! We had 89 Meet Uppers attend from 5 different groups. I want to thank everyone for coming out and making all the food donations for Philabundance. We have an SUV full of canned goods and I will be making the trek down to the city this coming week to drop it all off.

    Thanks to Fran for also bringing her tasty dessert dish! It was delicious! And congrats to Fran for winning one of the raffle prizes!

    Thanks again to everyone and Happy Holidays To All! ;)
