King Township Food Bank Fundraiser - Sip & Savour

While we are happy to live in a luscious part of the GTA, York Region has a vulnerable sector of society that relies on the services of food banks. The (small but mighty) King Township Food Bank supports over 200 people on a regular basis. Over 40% of those we serve are children or seniors, the most vulnerable sectors of society. We offer recipients a week's worth of necessities and food items AS WELL AS an option for food cards towards the purchase of food items - which enable recipients to choose items of their preference while maintaining a sense of independence - giving dignity instead of charity.

Sip & Savour is the Food Bank's annual and signature fundraiser, relied heavily upon to generate necessary funds to sustain its operation and continue to support the community. This year's theme is "London Calling" and features the tastes, sites and sounds of the streets of London. We hope to attract a sell-out crowd where people can come out, enjoy and Brit up their life for an evening (6-9PM). It's sure to be the cocktail party of the year!

Thursday, October 19th
Nobleton Lakes Golf Club
6pm - 9pm

Sip & Savour tickets and additional information on the Food Bank are available on the website: www.kingtownshipfoodbank.ca.
