So let's recap. Friday morning, we had our annual Turkey Takeout. We distributed 500 Thanksgiving meals to our partner agencies. Here's WRAL's story on the big day here. Our friend Andy Beal (@andybeal) took some great pictures that we've posted to our Flickr site. And here's our Behind-The-Scenes look at how it went down.
Friday night was the benefit concert/dance party put on by NC State Students at the Sky lounge on Hillsborough Street. That was a lot of fun. We are still figuring up how much food and cash we collected. Who knew our very own Cece White could do such a mean Electric Slide? Even the Food Dude was there.
Saturday night was the Carolina Roller Girls Charity Bout. We'll have pictures and a handle on how much food was collected later this week.
This was a great way to kickoff the holiday season. We can't fight hunger across seven counties without support from the community. Great businesses like US Foods, engaged college students, the Carolina Rollergirls, our partner agencies and volunteers--THANKS!
