Women & Children's Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen will host its third Dinner on the Bridge: Celebrating Farm-to-Fork on September 20, 2019 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. We are thrilled to invite your sponsorship of this truly one-of-a-kind event.
All proceeds from this event will enrich WCFR programs assisting and educating women, children and families living with food insecurity. Currently, we serve three weekly meals in our restaurant; provide meals at more than two dozen partner locations across the community; and offer adult nutrition education classes and cooking camps for kids. Now in our 31st year, we will provide 90,000 nutritious meals in 2019. Our goal: to fill nutritional gaps and create a healthier community.
We are passionate about our work! Inspiring the people we serve with kindness and dignified treatment; providing healthy meal options for people with few choices; and serving delicious meals created from fresh ingredients are hallmarks of WCFR programs and services.
We hope that you will find the same passion we have for our mission and support this vital fundraising effort. Sponsorships are a great way to increase your organization’s name recognition while giving back to your community.
I hope you will consider participating as a sponsor of Dinner on the Bridge. To receive a copy of our sponsorship packet or for other assistance, please contact me at 509-324-1995 ext. 303 or email@example.com.
