Food Backpacks 4 Kids 10 Year Celebration and Fundraiser

Bob Wickline and Friends will be playing at FB4K's 10 Year Celebration & Fundraiser at the Inn at Gig Harbor on May 18, 2019. Come enjoy music, appetizers, drinks and more! A silent auction and raffle will help us raise funds to continuing feeding nearly 400 families in our community each week. Our goal is to make sure that hunger doesn't keep any child from learning. Nationwide studies show that a hungry child is a distracted child, unable to learn, and often disruptive in the classroom. We want to make sure that every child arrives at school on Monday morning having had enough to eat all weekend.

Tickets available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4198080. ($25)
