Dinner Fundraiser to Help Support Malnourished Children
ROSEVILLE - A local effort to pack hundreds of thousands of meals for malnourished children around the world is holding its annual major fundraiser to help pay for the meals that will be packed.
The special dinner, to be held Sept. 12 with catering donated by Randy Peters Catering and Event Planning, will benefit the 5th Annual Feed My Starving Children MobilePack.
All of the proceeds of the fundraiser will help pay for the meals to be packed during the non-profit Feed My Starving Children MobilePack event, scheduled for Oct. 23 to 25 at William Jessup University. In the first four years, the MobilePacks have packed more than 1.8 million meals.
Randy and Lisa Peters, owners of Randy Peters Catering & Event Planning, are donating all the food and their service for the event - meaning every dollar raised will go toward paying for meals for the MobilePack.
"We and our employees have had the honor of participating in a MobilePack and seeing hundreds of people come together and pack meals for malnourished children," Randy Peters said. "Thousands of children die every day around the world due to malnutrition - we are compelled to make a difference."
Each meal packed at the MobilePack costs just 22 cents and provides a malnourished child with a scientifically designed meal intended to help bring them back to health.
Tickets for the dinner, to be held at Valley Springs Church, 2401 Olympus Drive in Roseville, are $40 per person, meaning each ticket purchased will pay for 182 meals to feed malnourished children.
"We are very excited to partner again with Randy and Lisa Peters for this special fundraiser for a third year," said Cynthia Lawrence, chair of the dinner event. "The dinner is our biggest fundraiser for our MobilePack - and it's part of the reason we were successful at our 2013 MobilePack."
In addition to the western-themed dinner, a live auction, silent auction, live entertainment, and raffles will also take place throughout the night.
Randy Peters Catering & Event Planning is one of the top catering companies in the area, offering unique culinary creations and styling. The catering firm has been regularly recognized for its excellence. Randy and Lisa Peters have been recognized by many organizations for their service to communities in the area.
The dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 12. Tickets may be purchased online at www.SacFMSCMobilePack.org. Sponsorships for the dinner are also available and organizers are accepting donations of auction and raffle items.
