Mississauga, ON April 25, 2012
Following last week’s successful event, “A Night at the Warehouse”, The Mississauga Food Bank is pleased to announce they raised $100,000 to feed those who are hungry in Mississauga.
This is the first time the charity has hosted their annual fundraiser in their 10,000 square foot distribution warehouse. 325 supporters attended the casual event featuring music by the Virgil Scott Band, a live and silent auction, and a buffet of soups and breads prepared and donated by local restaurants and bakeries.
Presented by the Tim Hortons Store Owners of Mississauga and sponsored by Mercury Mortgages, Mississauga Honda, Sam McDadi RE/Max and Rogers TV Mississauga, this event was a “one-of-a-kind” gala that allowed guests inside the warehouse where food for 2 million meals a year is sourced, sorted, stored and distributed.
Meghan Nicholls, the food bank’s director of marketing and fund development and the event’s organizer, said: “We are thrilled with the results of this event and the support we received from the community. It was a really fun night, and we loved hosting our guests in our warehouse among the boxes of food that feed our hungry neighbours.”
After last week’s success and positive feedback, organizers are already planning for 2013. Photos from the event are available on the organization’s website at www.themississaugafoodbank.org/photosandvideo/.
