The 2017 Harvest Dinner for Hunger was a great success! Guests enjoyed a 5-course dinner from Madison Originals restaurants, live music, a silent auction, raffles, and heard stories of those who have been touched by The River Food Pantry. $60,000 was raised from the dinner, with an additional $20,000 match we received from a generous donor. Money raised at the Harvest Dinner will go directly to the goods and services provided by The River, which supports 700 households every week, along with the mobile lunch program for children and teens on non-school days.
We’d like to take this time to thank everyone who helped make this event such a success! Thank you, Madison Originals restaurants for serving a delicious 5-course meal; Brasserie V, Porta Bella Restaurant, Liliana’s Restaurant, CIRC, and Daisy Cafe & Cupcakery. Thank you The Dawg Bones and The Betsy Ezell Quartet for performing at our event. Thank you NBC Channel 15’s evening news anchor John Stofflet, for once again being a fantastic emcee. And lastly, thank you to all the volunteers who helped at the event.
