Hands4Hope feeds hungry crowd ready to give back
This year the Hands4Hope Youth Board recently hosted its second annual spaghetti feed fundraiser to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and Hands4Hope charities. The evening was a major success, raising nearly $3,000. About 175 people enjoyed a delicious spaghetti dinner served by the board members.
“The youth board did an amazing job getting food donations, a raffle, and a fun dessert auction that profited a great cause,” said Emily Abraham, youth board president for the spaghetti feed. “BBBS does so much to help change the lives of at-risk youth, and they really appreciate the support of the community.”
Hands4Hope Youth Board members and the BBBS Executive Director Judy Knapp spoke at the event. A BBBS “Big” and “Little” shared their testimony, which was truly touching. A little boy explained how he spends every birthday with his Big Brother, and they have even been to Disneyland together.
Hands4Hope would like to thank the following sponsors for their contribution to the spaghetti feed: Western Sign Company, Wells Fargo Financial Services, Bel Air Cameron Park, Macaroni Grill and Clarity Audio and Visual.
“Our youth board did an incredible job planning and executing the success of this event,” said Jennifer Basset, CEO of Hands4Hope. “The venue was beautiful, check-in ran smoothly, the food was delicious and the program was wonderful.”
