YPF Casino Night raises $5,750 for Fondy Food Pantry
Incredible generosity helped to make the 2014 YPF Casino Night fundraiser a tremendous success! Through the support and generosity of sponsors, donors and attendees the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac (YPF) were able to present a $5,750 check donation to the Fondy Food Pantry.
“Fondy Food Pantry is extremely grateful to YPF for selecting our organization as the recipient for this year’s Casino Night donation,” stated Sarah Zimmerman, president of the Fondy Food Pantry. “We also appreciate the volunteers and sponsors of the event, as well as the guests, as we know this donation would not be possible without everyone’s support and participation.”
On Friday, September 19, South Hills Golf & Country Club was enveloped in a Casino Night atmosphere where young professionals and community members raised $5,750 for the Fondy Food Pantry! The event also helped to stock the shelves as attendees donated to a food drive, filling over six donation bins!
“The annual YPF Casino Night fundraiser is all about giving back to the community,” explained Jenny Knuth, 2014 YPF president. “Having the opportunity to give back in this way is extremely important and reinforces YPF’s mission and commitment to serving our members and the community we live and work in.”
The Fondy Food Pantry is an all-volunteer community organization committed to serving hungry adults and children in Fond du Lac. “The cash donation will be used to purchase individual meal items for our weekend kids food program, Food for Thought, as well as food items for our family food boxes,” explained Zimmerman. “Thank you again to everyone involved. The donation is greatly needed and much appreciated!”
Zimmerman went on to explain that Fondy Food Pantry would not be able to execute its mission without these donations and the awareness these types of events raise for those in need. For more information about the Fondy Food Pantry visit www.fondyfoodpantry.org.
