2013 has been an exciting year for the Laguna Food Pantry, and the month of May has produced much of that excitement.
On May 10 at its Taste of Charity gala, the Laguna Board of Realtors honored our organization as one of this year’s recipients. Our board and volunteers are so grateful to LBR and its organizers as well as the local businesses and residents who gave so generously to make the evening wildly successful.
Then this past Friday and Saturday, Evonne Kane and her remarkable team of volunteers produced the biggest and best Boutique Benefit in its seven-year history. We feel deeply fortunate to have been one of the non-profits Evonne has chosen to support over the years. So many low-income people in our community have benefited from her kindness and dedication.
Finally, on Sunday afternoon, the United Methodist Church hosted the most beautiful concert on our behalf, featuring Sodalis, the church’s own piano quartet, as well as other talented young and young-at-heart members of the congregation. The overflow audience enjoyed passionate, humorous, spirited and spiritual performances. To Doug and Cindy Williams, John Feeney, the incredible artists and the entire congregation, our heartfelt thanks.
All of us at the Laguna Food Pantry feel so fortunate to be members of a community with such open hearts.
