FALLBROOK – Silvergate Fallbrook will bring local seniors together with the greater Fallbrook community for a lively summer fundraiser – "An Evening at Graceland" – Thursday, July 28 from 4-6 p.m.
The event will help support the essential work undertaken year-round by the Fallbrook Food Pantry and provides the Fallbrook community with a unique opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of local children, families, and seniors in need.
Festivities will include a live Elvis impersonator performing many of the singer's rock-n-roll classics, an interactive dance duo and refreshments in Silvergate's new Star Terrace Courtyard.
Silvergate will be collecting $25 entry donations at the door along with one or more non-perishable food items. Donations will be matched by Silvergate, allowing funds raised to go twice the distance for the charity.
Attendees can also donate during the event to support the organization's cause in one of several different donation levels, including:
● A $100 donation which feeds two senior citizen households of two for one month.
● A $250 donation to help purchase two pallets of milk – the equivalent of 216 gallons.
● A $500 donation to allow the food pantry to purchase 300 pounds of fresh produce.
● A $1,000 donation which feeds 10 families of four for one full month.
"The generosity of the community of Fallbrook cannot be overstated," said Patricia Martinez, executive director at Silvergate whose onsite chef will serve a Blue Suede Shoe cocktail and Elvis-inspired hors d'oeuvres. "We're excited to be hosting this event to support the Fallbrook Food Pantry, which does so much to improve the lives of seniors and families right here in town."
"What a great way for the public to enjoy an evening of entertainment and feel good about sharing with those less fortunate," said Shae Gawlak, executive director of Fallbrook Food Pantry, which distributes more than a million pounds of food annually in Fallbrook. "Hunger is a serious problem even in California. We produce nearly half of the nation's fruits and vegetables, and yet 1 in 5 Californians currently struggle with food insecurity."
Silvergate invites the public to join the festivities to help raise awareness and funds to assist those in need right in Fallbrook. RSVP's are being taken by Belen Garcia at 760-728-8880.
