Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest is an interactive evening with stories of impact, a fantastic dinner party, and live and silent auctions. In 2018 we held our 3rd annual Be Our Guest fundraising event. We are humbled by the support of the 272 people who joined us that evening. We grossed a record of $142,491 (net $135,770)—enough to serve 483 guests with our full range of services, or serve 38,900 delicious and nutritious meals.

This event would not be possible without the support of the following sponsors:
