Kids’ Meals’ 10th Annual Harvest Luncheon Is Right Around the Corner
Summer is over and fall has arrived bringing with it cooler temperatures, garden-fresh vegetables, and the Kids’ Meals’ 10th Annual Harvest Luncheon. The event, which raises funds for the organization’s important programs, will be held on Friday, November 2, 2018 at the beautiful Marriott Marquis Downtown. The Harvest Market will open at 10 a.m. and the luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m.
Lara Bell and Roseanne Rogers will be co-chairing this year. Lynda Transier and Rachel Regan will be the host committee chairs. For the auction, Bree Knodel and Christina Sacco, will chair. Kimberly Williams will be the market chair and Suzanne Stiles will be the decorations chair.
Kids’ Meals is delighted to announce that Sysco is this year’s corporate honoree, Elaine and Jim Turner are this year’s Burrell Legacy Honorees, and Elizabeth and John Elder and Eloise and James Taussig will be receiving the Golda and Gil Baker Award.
Laura Schroff, best-selling author of An Invisible Thread, An Invisible Thread Christmas Story, and Angels on Earth, will be the guest speaker. She is sure to inspire attendees with her account of meeting an impoverished 11-year-old panhandler in 1986 and the empowering journey they took together that would remarkably change his life forever.
YouTube sensation, Claire Crosby, will delight luncheon guests, by singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” with her father, Dave Crosby. The five-year-old singer has charmed audiences on The Voice, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Little Big Shots.
As in past years, Kid’s Meals’ Harvest Luncheon will be an event no one will want to miss.
About Kids’ Meals
Kids’ Meals is a caring nonprofit whose mission is “to end childhood hunger by delivering free healthy meals to the doorsteps of Houston’s hungriest preschool-aged children, and, through collaboration, provide their families with resources to help end the cycle of poverty.” Every day of the year, Kids’ Meals’ volunteers prepare thousands of healthy lunches and deliver them to children enrolled in their program. Kids’ Meals currently serves six Houston-area routes where the need is critical.
In addition to the five nutritious weekly meals the organization provides, it also supplies its children with a variety of helpful resources. These include: free books every quarter, turkeys at Thanksgiving, toys and fun at a holiday Christmas party, and information on critical community resources families need to help them with other issues they face due to extreme poverty.
