Kudos: Volunteers, sponsors make Food For Thought fundraiser successful

Volunteers, sponsors make Food For Thought fundraiser successful

Food For Thought would like to think all the people who came out and supported us at our Saddle Up For Kids Events. The June 28 dinner at the Governor’s Mansion and the June 29 carnival at Mills Park wouldn’t have been as successful if not for our volunteers!

Saturday was our first carnival. The families that came had a wonderful time going up in a hot air balloon, playing carnival games, bouncing in bounce houses, climbing the rock wall and eating! This event was sponsored by Carson City Toyota Scion, Allison MacKenzie Pavlakis Wright & Fagan Attorneys & Counselors of Law, NV Energy, JM Furniture, Carson Tahoe Health, Greater Nevada Credit Union and RE/MAX Realty Affiliates. We want to thank Kiwanis for preparing the food, Grocery Outlet for the food, and all the volunteers that helped setup, run and tear down the carnival!

Thank you again to all the volunteers, sponsors, donors and all who came out to make these two events such a success! If you would like to know how you can help with our next event, please call Food For Thought at 775-885-7770.
