Even if the event were just a fundraiser for the Volunteer Center center, it would be extremely worthwhile for you to attend. The center offers many great programs, including community gardens, an intergenerational lunch program, a weekend backpack program for children, and much more.
But the dinner is more than a fundraising activity; it is an exercise in awareness. "The event is intended to be educational and encourage participants and diners to think critically about their food, their social positions, and the realities of hunger and poverty in our county, state, and nation," said Becca Anderson, executive assistant at the center.
Tickets for the dinner, which will be held at the Silver City Women's Club, 411 Silver Heights Blvd., 5:30-7:30 p.m. are $15.00 per person. But if you plan to go, hurry and get your ticket because space is limited to 100 seats.
