Dear Mr. Israel,
Thank you for your generous donation of “Chef and Child” a 12″ x 16″ Mixed Media Original Canvas for the Chefs for Kids Dinner and Auction to be held on May 7, 2016 at the South Point. This will be a wonderful addition to our event. The piece is truly inspirational, fitting with our organization’s theme and mission. This donation is far more than I ever imagined, and we are deeply grateful for this gift to help us improve the lives of children in our community. Monies raised help feed and educate children in building healthy behaviors while they are young; behaviors that can beat the obesity epidemic and that they can carry into adulthood. Eating a healthful diet and maintaining a physically active lifestyle have been proven to reduce the risk of chronic disease that can place an economic as well as a physical burden on our entire community.
Our educational program in high needs schools has taught over 54,200 children since the program began. Additionally, Chefs for Kids feeds over 9,000 children yearly with its breakfast program, donates over 150 Thanksgiving baskets and holiday food gift cards to families in our schools each year and supports the Shade Tree Shelter with a yearly Christmas Eve breakfast and Mother’s Day dinner. Thank you for being part of our Chefs for Kids family!
