May 11 at 6:00 pm - Annual Benefit Dinner, “A Meal that Matters”

Call (814) 360-6571 for tickets.  $125 each ($65 tax deductible)

It’s a party with a purpose! Come join the fun on Thursday, May 11 in the beautiful ballroom of the Nittany Lion Inn, as the State College Meals on Wheels family gathers for its annual benefit dinner, “A Meal That Matters.” This year the dinner features Sandy Barbour, Penn State Director of Athletics, and recent winner of the Under Armour Athletic Director of the Year Award. We will also have entertainment by Fourfold Jazz, a terrific smooth jazz group composed of talented State College High musicians. A “Meal That Matters” provides a wonderful opportunity to share good conversation and great food with friends and colleagues while helping to provide much-needed funding to an organization that feeds those in our community who cannot cook for themselves. The extensive silent auction opens with the social hour at 6:00 pm. Chat with friends and cruise the auction displays while enjoying butlered hors d’oeuvres and classic jazz tunes. Bidding continues during dinner, which begins at 7:00 pm… complimentary wine is included and the dessert is always decadent. It will be a great evening with something for everyone—you may even win a great door prize!
