People Helping People is very excited to announce that Bob Murray owner of the Café Escadrille will be hosting the Third Annual Wine
Tasting and Charity Auction with all proceeds going to support People Helping
The event will be held at the Café Escadrille on Sunday,
March 9 from 2-5 p.m. There will be wine
tasting, gourmet appetizers, live auctions and silent auctions. All this for just $40.00
Anyone who attended previous year’s events will remember that
as you entered the Escadrille you were greeted with a “Glass of Champagne or
Wine”. Then you entered the ballroom
and the appetizers were numerous and exquisite!
The Charity Auction will be performed by Auctioneer Steve DiOrio who promises to be entertaining and with lots of great prizes to bid on.
People Helping People is the umbrella organization for the Burlington Food Pantry, the Holiday Program & Wish Tree and the
Covenant for Basic Needs. These three non-profit and volunteer-supported
organizations are striving to meet the basic necessities of Burlington
residents who have been hit hardest by the economic downturn.
In 2013 the
Food Pantry distributed over 115,000 pounds of food to families in Burlington
which was an increase from last year. An
average of 333 people pass through the pantry each month. 57 new families started to receive resources
from the Pantry in 2013. This past December the Wish Tree gave out gifts
to 100 families (close to 1,000 gifts) which was a significant increase over
last year. In November over 180 families
in town were provided the fixings for Thanksgiving dinners.
The money raised at this event will help us continue
to meet these needs in 2014. We are
extremely grateful to Bob Murray for his continued generosity to People Helping
