Dinner for 12 Strangers - Host

Are you interested in hosting a HOBY D12? D12s give HOBY alumni, volunteers, parents, and supporters the chance to make new HOBY connections in your area. Although the program stands for “Dinner for 12 Strangers,” the focus is more on conversation and fun than the dinner itself!

Are you concerned about space? No worries! When registering, simply select the number of guests you are able to comfortably accommodate and we will adjust the registration for your dinner accordingly.

As some D12 hosts have found, themed dinners can help the group feel more relaxed while meeting fellow guests in an informal setting. There are several ways to spin a themed dinner - check out the “Register to Host” page below for some ideas.


The registration deadline to host a HOBY D12 is Thursday, September 21st.

**Please note that according to HOBY’s food policy, moving forward D12 dinners must be catered and not home-cooked. So, order some pizza or takeout from your favorite restaurant or grocery store, or go out to eat, and enjoy!
