Funds Raised at Annual Feed the Hungry Gala Will Aid Thousands of South Shore Families

Hundreds of Interfaith Social Services’ supporters gathered Friday, Dec. 6, to “party with a purpose” for the organization’s 22nd annual Feed the Hungry Gala. The event, held at Quincy’s Granite Links Golf Club, raised more than $310,000 to support Interfaith’s programs.

Interfaith provides a safety net for families that may need food, housing assistance or mental health counseling. Interfaith’s food pantry distributes more than 600,000 meals each year and places a focus on providing joy for children by providing those in need with Halloween costumes, holiday gifts, school backpacks and more. Proceeds from the gala provide for a third of Interfaith’s annual budget.

Attendees at this year’s gala sampled dishes and sweet treats from local restaurants Alma Nove, Big Rock Oyster Company, Fratelli’s Pastry Shop, Granite Links Golf Club, JP Fuji Group, Montilio’s Baking Company, Sadie Mae’s Cupcake Café, The Corner Stop Eatery, The Quarry Restaurant & Lounge, The Range, The Townshend and Victory Point Marina Bay.

Representatives from Bent Water Brewing, Mayflower Brewing and Stellwagen Beer Company served up tastings in the Craft Beer Corner, Spiritfruit sampled their vodka and sparkling juice beverages, and Bin Ends poured wine tastings for the crowd. Coffee Break Café offered up coffees and flavored lattes.

Gala attendees rounded out the night by competing for prizes at several game stations, enjoying live music and participating in the live and silent auctions which included Disney vacations, a trip to Ireland, private chef dinners, sports tickets and much more.

The Feed the Hungry Gala was produced by a dedicated committee headed by Donna Mavromates, of Hingham, and Maura O’Brien, of Scituate. This year’s lead sponsors included Presenting Sponsor Arbella Insurance Foundation and Hero Sponsors A Healthy Balance Inc., MavroCreative, Quincy Mutual Group, Rural Masonic Lodge of Quincy, and Signet Electronic Systems.
