Host a Gathering: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

Host a Gathering: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Thank you for your interest in hosting a gathering to help CultureALL continue its mission to lead communities in valuing our culturally rich diversity.

Here’s What You Need to Know

Host Responsibilities – What You Are Committing to Do

As a Host, you:

  • Will organize a culturally themed gathering and invite guests to learn about that culture through conversation and cuisine.
  • May choose to host your gathering in your home, place of business, at a restaurant, or any community venue.
  • May choose the size and style of your gathering: a big or intimate, cocktails or brunch, formal dinner, potluck, or even breakfast!
  • Hold the gathering (ideally) over the weekend of October 20-22, 2017. (If this weekend will not work for you contact us to discuss other options)
  • Will ask guests to make a contribution to CultureALL when they attend the gathering; suggest an amount you feel is comfortable to your guests, and/or let them choose how much to contribute.

What You Will Get – How CultureALL Will Help You Create a Successful Gathering

Hosts will receive:

  • Guidance and resources with invitations, suggestions, and tips for planning a successful gathering.
  • An invitation to a Kickoff Party, where you will meet other hosts, share ideas, and attend a special screening of the film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
  • Access to online tools to assist you with managing your guest list and even collecting contributions!
  • Access to CultureALL Ambassadors who can help make your gathering culturally authentic.
  • A unique opportunity to gather with old and new friends to learn, explore, discuss, and celebrate culture and have fun while doing good!

  • What You Are Supporting

    CultureALL is preparing the next generation of global citizens to take on the challenges of living, working and thriving in a more compassionate, inclusive community by:

    • Transforming immigrants and refugees into CultureALL Ambassadors who lead students to a greater understanding and appreciation of world cultures
    • Empowering students to overcome fears and prejudices and forge friendships across cultures
    • Helping schools to break down barriers and create a learning environment where all students feel welcome, appreciated, and inspired to achieve.

    The Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? event will help us continue our work in transforming the way diversity education is done in Iowa.

    Can’t Host a Gathering the Weekend of October 20-22?

    If it’s not convenient for you to host a gathering the weekend of October 20-22, you can still participate.  You can build on the momentum from the event and host your gathering later.  If you can commit to hosting your gathering before the end of 2017, please fill out the Host Commitment Form and let us know. We’ll still include your name and give you credit as a host in the event program and other promotion during the October weekend.  If you’d like to host a gathering next year, submit an Information Request to let us know, and we’ll contact you to help you plan a party that you – and your guests – will love.
