The 2017 High Heels for Hot Meals Golden Anniversary goes down in the books as the most successful one yet!
Final numbers are not in, but Meals on Wheels will receive between $55,000 - $60,000 thanks to the support of sponsors and guests who attended. This is at least $10,000 higher than ever before!
Over 300 community supporters attended the event, participating the various activities such as Shoe Garden Bidding, Live Auction, Signature Drink Raffle, and Casino Play. MC and Auctioneer Chris Cunningham introduced Board Chairs and community leaders to toast THE Kitchen's 50th Anniversary and encouraged participants to donatwe generously during our auction.
Shirley Bradberry, Director of Client Services for Meals on Wheels, received a Recognition Trophy for 32 years of service feeding our community.
DJ Marcus kept the party going throughout the night and helped promote participation with our Shoe Cam donated by KFDX.
Thank you to sponsors, guests, volunteers, and donors for celebrating this monumental milestone with us!
