Event Chair Marilyn Cabak, along with almost 200 guests, recently supported the San Francisco Food Bank while enjoying an elegant summer dinner on the San Francisco waterfront at the St. Francis Yacht Club, which included a live and silent auction. The event raised an astonishing $140,000 – the highest ever!
Proceeds from the event will provide groceries for low-income families in the San Francisco and Marin area. Throughout the year The San Francisco Food Bank delivers food to over 400 “community partners,” including neighborhood pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, youth programs, and domestic violence and homeless shelters, reaching 23,500 households a week.
“One of the reasons I love being associated with the Food Bank is because when you make a donation to the Food Bank you know exactly where that money is going”, says Marilyn Cabak. “For every dollar that is donated to the Food Bank, we can go out and purchase $6 worth of food to help feed low income families. I want to be a part of all this – I want to feel at the end of the day that I have helped do something to alleviate the hunger we see all over our wonderful city.”
