What’s a Box Social, you say?
Well, it’s a special kind of pot-luck way folks raised money in olden days.
Just find a box, basket, or bag
and decorate it really nice.
Use ribbons, flowers, or whatever you have
to make that box go for a pretty price.
Then fill it up with scrumptious foods to make a most pleasing meal.
Like simple egg salad and honeyed ham with fresh fruit,
fancy cheeses, olives, and jams with a nice bottle of wine,
Mom’s meatloaf and biscuits with a steaming side of veggies,
or fried chicken, corn, and taters with apple pie to boot!
Make your meal whatever you want and dress it up all sweet,
for everyone at Box Socials come to party and EAT!
Write your meal upon a tag and attach it to your box.
Don’t forget to write your name and how many people it serves.
Then we’ll know just what it is when we auction it off!
The fancier you’re box will be,
the more money it will see.
Then we’ll send all that cash to support a good cause like being cancer FREE!
Don’t forget to bring your money so you can get in on the grub
and we’ll share in the laughing and eating that comes with good company love!
If you can’t make it you can still make a donation!
