3rd Annual “Food from the Bar” Event Increases Donations to Feed Families in Need
Press Release (PR Web) San Diego, June 2nd, 2016 – Aptus Court Reporting and law firm Simpson Delmore Greene joined together to host the 3rd annual “Food From the Bar” event on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 in San Diego. The event included a happy hour and silent auction. A variety of items were available for bidding with the end goal of raising funds for those suffering from hunger in the San Diego area. Items included a vacation package to Mexico, private chef dinner, sporting and concert tickets, and yoga sessions to name a few.
All of the proceeds from the event benefited Feeding America, which offers relief to families in need through its nationwide network of food banks. This network spans 200 food banks and about 60,000 food pantries in the United States today. Last year, Feeding America served more than six billion meals to those in need.
This year’s “Food From the Bar” event raised a total of $6,740, an increase of 20% over last year’s donation from the same event. An anonymous donor also matched this donation 2:1, bringing the total donation amount to $20,220. The funds raised will provide more than 80,800 meals to those in need in the San Diego area.
Aptus Court Reporting founding partner, Ashley Walton, said “Every year this event keeps feeding more individuals and families in need. We’re grateful for our partnership with Simpson Delmore Greene and all of our team members who take the time to help with the event.”
