The Rotary Club of Brunswick is sponsoring a festive fund-raiser called “Pack a Backpack” on Wednesday, October 29, 6 – 8:00 PM in the Robinson Room of the Brunswick Hotel and Tavern, 4 Noble Street. “Pack a Backpack” will support the very successful and ambitious program by the Midcoast Hunger Prevention Project which provides food for the weekend for children and their families who are food insecure. Brunswick area teachers observed that some of the same children who receive free or reduced lunch, come to school on Monday mornings unable to learn because they are hungry. Healthy foods are packaged and sent home on Friday’s in the child’s ‘back pack.’
The “Pack a Backpack” soirée includes generous h’ors d’oeuvres, one drink and one chance at a drawing for a premium bottle of wine. A variety of items will be available through both a silent and live auction. Tickets are available from members of the Brunswick Rotary Club, Riley Insurance, 139 Maine St., Shaw’s at Cook’s Corner, and Indranis at the Tontine Mall at $30@. Tickets will also be available at the door for $35@.
Corporate or individual sponsors may wish to become “Hosts” and support the Backpack program at the $500 level. Hosts will receive six tickets for the event, two raffle tickets for the wine, and a pre-event party from 5 – 6:00PM with complimentary wine and exceptional hors d’oeuvres.
