BRADENTON, FL June 10, 2020 – Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee is gearing up for a virtual fundraising event Tropical Nights: Roaring 20’s in 2020 on Saturday, June 20, 2020 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Originally scheduled for March 28th, the event had to be postponed due to COVID-19.
Many nonprofit organizations rely on the revenue generated from fundraising events to maintain their operations. With the increased needs in the community over the last several weeks, the same is true for Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee. “COVID-19 has really put the spotlight on the work we do every day at Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee and The Food Bank of Manatee to feed those in need,” said Maribeth Phillips, President & CEO of Meals on Wheels PLUS. “While this isn’t the event we envisioned, we are grateful to have an online platform where we can share our important mission and critical work, while raising much needed resources,” stated Phillips.
The community is welcome to join the online event from 6:00-7:15 pm on Saturday June 20th by visiting http://bidpal.net/tropicalnights2020. The virtual event is free to attend and will include entertainment, live and silent auctions, and much more!
