ROCKLIN – A local effort to pack 500,000 meals for malnourished children around the world recently raised more than $18,000 at a dinner fundraiser hosted by Randy Peters Catering and Event Planning and held at Valley Springs Church in Roseville.
The money raised will cover the cost of 83,000 meals to be packed at the Feed My Starving Children MobilePack, being held at William Jessup University from Oct. 24 to Oct. 26.
“We are incredibly thankful for the partnership and support we received from Randy Peters Catering and Event Planning,” said Michael Gebhardt, one of the organizers of the Sacramento area MobilePack. “This year alone they have helped us reach nearly 17 percent of our fundraising goal. Their tremendous generosity has been an integral part of our efforts to give to those less fortunate.”
In addition to dinner, the event featured a silent auction, dinner entertainment, and raffles that took place throughout the night.
