Event Recap: Share Our Strength Dinner Raises $139K


It doesn't take giant banquet halls or fancy parties to make a big difference. All you need is some good food and a community that cares.

Last night at Poole's Diner, we were honored to host our sixth annual dinner for Share Our Strength, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in our country. It's a vitally important cause, and one that we are proud to be a part of. And through the generous support of this community, we were able to raise just shy of $140,000 that'll go towards making sure that children in North Carolina always have access to a meal.

We want to thank our guest chefs who joined us at Poole's last night--Joe Kindred, Nancy Silverton, Michael Fojtasek, Hillary Sterling, and Phoebe Lawless--who prepared incredibly delicious dishes for our attendees and donated their time and energy to join us. Huge thanks also to Matt Fern, who joined us to pour some delicious wine. We'd also like to thank our amazing team at Poole's, who volunteered their Sunday evening to help us put on this event.

We feel lucky every day be a part of such an amazing city and feel honored by the chance to give back.
