Rowan Helping Ministries to hold ‘Feed the Need’
Rowan Helping Ministries’ first ever “Feed the Need” fundraiser will take place at Morgan Ridge Vineyards on Oct. 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. This event will raise funds for its Food for Thought program, which aims to provide nutritious, shelf-stable weekend meals to children within the school system who rely on free and reduced lunch during the week. Often students do not eat between Friday lunch and breakfast Monday morning.
Food for Thought plans to serve 900 food-insecure students this 2018-2019 school year and hopes to raise over $75,000 through this fundraiser. Funds raised at this event will go toward achieving these program goals.
The Lee Bros. of Charleston, nationally recognized chefs and authors, will make a special appearance and the evenings menu will feature recipes from their award-winning cookbook. A variety of auction items will be available for bid and the organization will be raffling off a signature trip to New York.
Attendees are encouraged to RSVP immediately, as tickets are limited to the first 150 guests. Tickets are $65/person and can be purchased over the phone via credit card by contacting Karen Taylor at 704-637- 6838 ext. 100 or by sending cash or check to Rowan Helping Ministries at 226 N.
