The National Honor Society at Seminole HS in Sanford, FL, organizes a Dating Game fundraiser based on the concept of the television show, with three bachelors and three bachelorettes asking unseen contestants a series of questions. The questions are written by the NHS officers, who also choose the contestants. The show is unrehearsed, which adds to the comic value. After the bachelors/bachelorettes ask their questions, the audience votes by applause to indicate who should be selected from the unseen contestants to form the new couple. After the six couples have been decided, the audience also votes for which couple should be named best couple, most likely to break up, most likely to stay together, and cutest couple. Musical entertainment is provided while the votes are counted and certificates are presented at the end of the show. Audience members pay $3 per ticket to attend this annual fundraising event, which allows for a fun and easy fundraiser as it draws big crowds each year. Source: National Honor Society
