Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry will be holding its annual fundraising gala on Saturday, September 30 at Pipers Banquets in Aurora. This year’s event, dubbed ‘OctoberFeast’ will feature beer and wine tastings, full open bar, a German-themed dinner, and live and silent auctions. Tickets are $100 per person (tables of 10 are $1,000) and all proceeds benefit Aurora Food Pantry.

“It’s going to be a fun evening that will have a positive and immediate impact on our community,” said Marilyn Weisner, Executive Director of Aurora Food Pantry.

While the event is German-themed, the tastings will have a local flair, with Aurora-based Hopvine Brewing Company and Aspen Lane Wine Company providing the beer and wine tastings. Dress for the event is business casual (guests are encouraged to wear their best lederhosen).

A highlight of the evening will be the silent and live auctions, which include fabulous vacations, sports tickets, one-of-a-kind experiences, and more. Check back closer to September 30 to view the auction packages.

This annual fundraiser is crucial to ensuring that the 23,000 people who visit Aurora Food Pantry each year – including over 9,000 children – continue to have access to fresh, healthy food. Every $1 raised at OctoberFeast will provide $7 worth of food to needy families in the community.
