Select Service at More Than Just Desserts fundraiser for the Arthritis Society

On Sunday March 28, 2010, Select Service participated in a fundraiser for the Arthritis Society called More Than Just Desserts. Along with five other restaurants, we served bite-size hors d'oeuvres and sweets to the attendees of the gala event.

Select's table features our own pulled pork in a Waterloo Dark beer and chipotle barbecue sauce served in miniature tart shells, and our signature chocolate fountain with fresh fruit and profiteroles. Our pulled pork was a big hit, and it was a close run for "Best hors d'oeuvre".

Event Cost Saving Tip of the Week #1

Offer a signature drink.

Whether planning a wedding, or a simple dinner at home, offer a signature drink to limit the selection at the bar. The drink can be a simple non-alcoholic punch or a fun cocktail, and you can offer the drink all night long or as guests arrive. Your guests will drink what is offered to them; an event is no different than inviting friends to your home and offering what you have prepared. A fairly simple bar with beer, wine, soft drinks, and a signature drink will go a long way.
