AWARDS DINNER RAISES $104,877

OCTOBER 11, 2017

The 2017 Awards Dinner & Auction was a big success, raising $104,877.01 to help struggling families with basic needs like food and health care. Dr. Cifford Walters of the Walters Family Foundation gave the keynote address. The Barbara Nelson Award was presented to Dr. Rodica Malos for her long-standing and tireless ministry as a volunteer provider of health care in the PACS Health Clinic. Long-time food pantry volunteer Joyce Jordan received the Director's Award. If you would like to attend next year's Awards Dinner, please save the date of October 14, 2018. We praise God for his blessing, and owe a huge debt of gratitude to our presenting sponsor Generations Retirement Communities, and all other sponsors, donors, volunteers, and seat purchasers who made this event a success for people in need. Thank you!
