NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
For the last two years I have been fortunate enough to host the only Fighting Hunger Talent Shows for Lawrence County.
In the process, we have been able to assist pantries in need to meet the demands of food insecurity within our community.
Many local restaurants have supported these fundraisers by coming together in offering free food samples of their signature products. It is a fun, innovative way to help them market their restaurants, and I praise them for the service they provide daily to all of us.
State Sen. Elder Vogel and state Rep. Chris Sainato have been wonderful support to the cause with wonderful silent auction gifts and their presence at the events. Tom Scott and his staff from the Lawrence County Community Action Partnership always open the doors of Ben Franklin Center to us to host the events and assist in setting up.
I want to acknowledge this year’s restaurants that provided free food samples: Two Rivers Café, Little Johnny’s II, Farone Brothers, Sweet Frog, Hito’s, Marchelloni’s, Neighborhood Food Pantry and King’s Family. Dallas Hartman supplied our bottled water and Kristen Anthony and her Girl Scout troop provided the cookies.
I wouldn’t be able to accomplish the success we have had without them.
Here we go again in Lawrence County. Live auctions will be held Aug. 9 and 16. People can watch for fliers and announcements for locations.
Do hopefuls have what it takes to win? Two winners will be chosen in October. Those wishing to sign up can call me at (724) 498-7902 to pre-register now.
