DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 15, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Soup Kitchen of Boynton Beach is proud to announce its first gala in recognition of its thirty years in serving the local community. The organization is a not for profit, sustaining itself only through the generosity of the community and its volunteers.
Since its humble beginnings in 1983, The Soup Kitchen has evolved over the years to continue addressing the needs of its “guests.” The Soup Kitchen takes pride in serving over 3 million hot meals since opening 30 years ago.
“We have a beautiful story to tell,” says Enrique Zuanetto – Executive Director. “The Soup Kitchen today does so much more, empowered by the generosity of the community and the need to care for members in our community who are less fortunate.” Since the very beginning, the Soup Kitchen has relied entirely on private donations and the work of caring volunteers.
“We serve approximately 700 hot meals and distribute over 100 groceries bags a day. In addition, we provide educational classes for expectant and/or young mothers of infants, distribute clothing at no cost, provide free immunizations, distribute turkeys in time for Thanksgiving, and play Santa Claus at Christmas time,” Zuanetto added.
“Our story needs to be shared” says Marlene Mejia, Chair of the 30th Anniversary Committee. “The Gala is our opportunity to recognize The Soup Kitchen for the important role it plays in the community and to help us continue raising funds to secure its future. We want to invite everyone to share in our celebration.”
The 30th Anniversary Gala will be held at Benvenuto Restaurant, 1730 N Federal Hwy in Boynton Beach on Thursday, April 18, 2013 from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets are available at $125 each.
