A couple weeks ago I did a fundraiser for my kid's school. I cooked 100# raw, I ended up with a little under 50# cooked, and served just barely over 200 sammiches. I was piling it on pretty good too - i.e. meat falling out of the sammich. The buns were the 4 inch RD buns. I compared prices and buns are actually cheaper at Smart and Final.
I don't have enough expertise to comment on the rest of your plan, but I figured I'd throw in what little I do know since I just did pretty close to the same thing for pork part of it.
I wish I were closer - I'd love to join in. Cooking large amounts of food is my idea of a good time, esp. for a good reason. Keep us posted on how we can get some $$ your way.
