The third annual Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week was a great success thanks to the support of our community.
With the help of our partner Waste Management, our schools, churches, businesses and neighbors donated thousands of pounds of food and still counting.
The Hunger Bowl event, hosted by the The Aliso Creek Inn and Golf Course, was a wonderful evening, with guests sipping soup donated by:
K’ya, French 75, Sapphire, Sundried Tomato and Mozambique.
Other special sponsors: Tequila by Tres Sietes, Wine by Youngs Market and desert baked by Auntie Mary’s Sweetery’s Delicious Cupcakes with the ingredients sponsored by Laguna Beach resident, Linda Butterwick.
Our enthusiastic guests turned the silent auction into a “competitive sport” as they bid on the bowls donated by generous artists and VIP’s, while listening to music of Scott Sechman, who graciously volunteered his musical talents. The students of the Trabuco Hills High School ceramics program donated a wonderful collection of bowls to the silent auction.
The evening ended with a gift of bowls made by children at St. Catherine of Siena Parish School and the Boys and Girls Club.
The City of Laguna Beach Housing and Human Services Committee wishes to thank all the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated their time and resources to this very important week benefiting the Laguna Relief and Resource Center.
