Community Harvest Food Bank's 30th Anniversary Gala
Saturday, March 9, 2013
Starts at 5:30 p.m.
Fort Wayne Marriott Marquis Ballroom
2013 marks the 30th year that CHFB has been serving northeast Indiana and has grown from being a “no name, little food bank in a secondary or third rate market” (as someone told me when I came here 16.5 years ago as the ED) to being nationally recognized for our efficiency, effectiveness, innovation and high level of accreditation standards.
Our annual Gala is again being held on Saturday, March 9th at the Hotel Fort Wayne (former Marriott) Marquis Ballroom and we want this to be a spectacular night of celebration, recognition and, of course, fundraising!
Our First Annual Diana Fisher Quilt-In is right around the corner, and excitement is building! We’ll be at the Project Linus House from 9 to 5 on Saturday March 9th, and we’ll be sewing, ironing, sandwiching, and tying ‘til we’re cross-eyed. Our goal is to have (at least) 61 quilts made at the end of the day. Visit Project Linus' website for more information.
