Harvest for the Hungry Food Pantry Dinner

Tom was the emcee again tonight and he did a great job. He has done it for all five dinners.
Great Job Mimi! I am so proud of you!
Mama and Papa had fun and she was happy that she won two candy baskets and some restaurant gift cards.
Tom and Randy were busy bidding on the Bobby Bowden signed items. Tom got the football and Randy won the helmet.
It was a packed house.
The dinner was catered by Kopper Kettle and everything was fabulous!
All of the baskets and items looked great and they all sold. Most of these things have been stored at Mimi's house, she is so glad they are all with new owners.
I won a Chicago trip package, a Holiday World package, Handy Manny toys, Mighty World, and two soccer balls.
The basket team has been working on them since late July. What a blessing all of the volunteers for this event have been.
It all looked great.
Mimi is a great planner.
Tonight was the 5th annual Harvest for the Hungry Food Pantry Dinner. Mimi has been tirelessly working for months for the big event. There is a great team of volunteers that help make this night a success and such an awesome fundraising event for the food pantry. Mimi orchestrates the entire night and it all went perfectly! There were so many wonderful auction items this year and the event was sold out! We do not have the final total yet but we know that over 50,000 dollars was raised. What a blessing for the food pantry and the families who are blessed by the pantry! The food pantry would not be able to keep their doors open without the money raised by this event. It was a wonderful night
