Downtown Palm Beach Gardens will team up with the Palm Beach County Food Bank for the third annual “A Magical Night to Fight Hunger” on Thursday, September 30, at 6 p.m. In honor of Hunger Action Month, Downtown is hosting a three-course dinner under the stars to raise awareness and funding for the food bank.
“We are grateful to Downtown Palm Beach Gardens for hosting ‘A Magical Night to Fight Hunger,’” said Jamie Kendall, CEO of the Palm Beach County Food Bank. “During the last fiscal year throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we distributed more than 17 million pounds of food and the demand for our services has tripled. Thanks to Downtown, the proceeds from this event will help us reach more hungry children, seniors, and families in Palm Beach County.”
During the alfresco benefit, guests will experience a strolling magician, musical entertainment, and other fun surprises. In addition, during the entire month of September, Downtown Palm Beach Gardens will host a non-perishable food drive that will be donated to the food bank. Donation bins will be located at south entrance between Yard House and VooDoo Bayou and in front of All Smiles Dentistry, CMX Theatres, Pineapple Kidz, Sloan’s, Swoozie’s, The Spice & Tea Exchange, and Vagabond Apparel Boutique. Suggested items include rice, pasta, canned and dry soup, shelf-stable milk, canned fruits, peanut butter, canned meat, canned tomato products, canned vegetables, beans, oatmeal, and cereal.
Tickets for “A Magical Night to Fight Hunger” are $75 per person. All proceeds benefit the Palm Beach County Food Bank. For more information on the event, click here.
