I am from Thunder Bay, Ontario and our Socials (they are actually called "Shag's" there) are only $2 for a ticket. There are always tons of prizes to win. The last shag i went to had 4 big prizes, one was a helicopter ride and a stay at a B&B, another was a running package which included new running shoes, clothes, etc... The other big prizes were just as nice. The rest of the prizes were smaller prizes (ie. gift certificates), at least 30 and everything was donated. I think if the tickets were cheaper here more people would come, I know if someone was trying to sell me a ticket for someones social that i didn't know I wouldn't spend $10 on the ticket. The one's in Thunder Bay were always packed, lots of drinking and dancing and tons of fun. The one I went to here in Winnipeg was kind of lame. There wasn't very many people and no one was dancing.

From everyone we've asked apparently $10 is the average price for tickets. We have lots of good prizes, I've been trying to get people to pass on the word some idea of what we have. But the only social I remember going to was as dead as the one you described, no one drank or danced, very little food or interesting prizes.
