We at the FEAST meals program – a partnership between Montpelier Senior Activity Center (MSAC), Just Basics, Inc. and Good Taste Catering – owe a large thank you to all of the volunteers, donors and diners who have helped our fledgling meals program get off the ground. We want to invite all of them, and the rest of the community, to celebrate with us at our open house and harvest-themed fundraiser dinner on Friday, October 18th from 4pm to 9pm.
MSAC, at 58 Barre Street in Montpelier, will host the event. Starting off the evening at 4pm will be a silent auction of food-oriented items, such as gift certificates to local restaurants, which you can peruse while enjoying appetizers and drinks from a cash bar. Bidding on the auction is open to all both before the dinner and at 8pm as the auction nears its close. At 5 pm, you may choose to dance as you listen to music by the Angie Zorzi Quartet.
The three-course meal (which can be meat-based or vegetarian), including soup and bread, salad and entree, and a dessert course, will begin at 6pm. The cost of tickets for the whole evening is $50 per person. You can purchase tickets in advance at the MSAC office or by calling 223-2518.
We think you’ll have a great evening, and perhaps you’ll join us again on a Thursday for our “FEAST to Go” lunches. They’re for sale to anyone, and help support the rest of the program which includes FEAST Together communal lunches on Tuesdays and Fridays, as well as FEAST at Home delivered meals.
So, come to the dinner and bring your friends! Consider donating above and beyond the ticket price to the FEAST program. And be in touch with us about how you can volunteer.
