Once again, the Kiwanis Club of Greater Westhampton, the Rotary Club of Westhampton and the Knights of Columbus will join forces for an evening in support of the Westhampton Food Pantry.
The 24th Annual Food Pantry Fundraiser will take place on Saturday, October 26 at Immaculate Conception Parish Hall in Westhampton Beach.
“We’re proud to work with our community service partners for this event,” Greg Menegio of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Westhampton shared. “It really brings the community together for a great common cause.”
From 5 to 8:30 p.m., attendees will enjoy a delicious buffet, straw raffles, a silent auction, activities for little ones, and a special seasonal event that children adore.
“There’s lots of fun for kids,” he added. “We have an indoor Halloween parade that’s always a success, along with face painting and crafts.”
In addition to the three local organizations spearheading the event, local eateries will also lend a hand. “The meal is great, which features dinner from Sydney’s Taylor-Made Cuisine, ice cream from Shock, and coffee from Hampton Coffee,” Menegio noted. “All of these merchants have been supporting this event for years, and we greatly appreciate their support.”
Admission to the 24th Annual Westhampton Food Pantry Fundraiser is $20 in advance and $25 at the door for adults, and $8 for children 12 and under. A Family Discount – the entry fee for the 3rd and 4th child will be waived with one adult and two paid children’s tickets – will also be offered. Tickets can be purchased in advance through the Kiwanis, Rotary, or Knights of Columbus, as well as at the Parish office, Lynne’s Cards & Gifts, Flowers by Rori and the Hentschel Agency.
Attendees are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Pantry. Proceeds from the benefit, which is the Pantry’s major fundraising event, will be used to procure food and other essentials for local families in need.
