John’s Roast Beef & Seafood, The Porthole, Edible Arrangements of Lynn, British Beer Company, Daniella’s Café of Danvers, PF Changs of Peabody, Panera of Swampscott, Wahlburgers in Lynnfield, and Angela’s Coal Fired Pizza in Saugus will all be featured at My Brother’s Table (MBT), annual Summer Party fundraiser, Thursday, August 11th at 7:00 pm at Spinelli’s, Lynnfield, MA. MBT is the North Shore’s largest soup kitchen located in Lynn. The party will be sponsored by the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation and the Salem Five Charitable Foundation. Tickets to the Summer Party are $65 per person and may be reserved by calling My Brother’s Table at 781-595-3224 or by visiting their webpage, www.mybrotherstable.org.
Since 1982, MBT has served over 3 million meals to people in need, in all kinds of weather, during years of economic ups and downs. “This event is a critical fundraiser for the Table. Because they do not receive any government support, they need to raise their entire budget through their own fundraising,” said Leslie Greenberg, program chair of this wonderful event. While last year’s Summer Party was very successful, since then, donations have been much harder to come by. In addition, the need has increased in recent months. It is the mission of My Brother’s Table to provide nutritious daily meals to people who need them. The funds raised by the Summer Party will allow us to continue to extend our helping hands and meet the growing need,” said Greenberg.
My Brother’s Table receives no government funding and is not a United Way affiliate. Instead, it relies on funding from private and corporate donations. Numerous North Shore businesses and organizations contribute to the Summer Party’s success.
As always, the Summer Party will feature fabulous food ― catered by the best restaurants in our area. Beautiful floral arrangements will be displayed from some of the North Shore’s finest florists. Musical entertainment, an instant wine cellar raffle as well as a silent auction will be held, the auction includes sporting event tickets, trips, gift certificates, and more.
