October Events Recap

IHOP Walnut Creek would like to thank everyone who came out to support the Food Bank on Tuesday October 18th. A total of $842 was generated that day. We look forward to next year’s event being even bigger and better. Your support is greatly appreciated.

ManorCare Walnut Creek celebrated its 20th year providing care for the community with two back-to-back events to benefit the Food Bank. The first, a Health Faire, contributed $840. The second event was their Annual Open House ~ a Casino Royale party this year. For the third year ManorCare hosted a Silent Auction at their Open House, with 100% of proceeds going to the Food Bank. The totals were unavailable, but with 65 generous donations from individuals and organizations we know it will be a significant contribution.

The Robert Jenson Salon was a sophisticated, elegant setting for the fundraiser they hosted in honor of their 27th anniversary. The event, co-hosted by internationally acclaimed photographic artist Bambi Cantrell of Cantrell Portrait Design, could only be described as “exquisite.” More opening night gala at an art gallery than a fundraiser at a hair salon, chicly dressed attendees enjoyed fine wines, artfully displayed delectable Asian-inspired hors d’oeuvres, and generously participated in raffles for equally elegant prizes, all while raising several thousand dollars to benefit the Food Bank.
