The Arboretum seems to be the center of the North Texas fundraising universe. Word just arrived that the North Texas Food Bank’s “Harvest” is returning to the Arboretum with a slight tweak. Co-Chairs Lisa and Marvin Singleton have decided to move last year’s fundraiser of grazing from the Camp House to the yumilicious “A Tasteful Place.”
According to NTFB CEO/President Trisha Cunningham, “This event is critical to our efforts to raise awareness and funds in support of our mission to provide healthy food for hungry North Texans – especially children and seniors. To date Harvest has helped us raise more than $1 million, providing more than 3 million meals for our neighbors in need. With Lisa and Marvin at the helm and the enchanting backdrop of the Arboretum, I know we will move the needle even further for those that are counting on us.”
While the chef-in-charge du jour is still to be announced, the date is set for Friday, September 20.
This food fest is strictly non-tuxedo and easy-does-it attire. So, give the couture gowns the night off and give the Spanx a rest for a night of wining and dining.
