To Whom it May Concern:
Over the past 2 years, , Jeffco Eats, a 501(c)(3) Colorado registered non-profit, has been working
toward eliminating childhood hunger in Jefferson County through our weekend and summer food
programs. Each week we provide weekend food packages for over 400 students and their families.
Sadly, the need is much greater than that. There are over 4,000 children in our county who participate
in free and reduced cost lunch programs. While they are provided for while at school, many face hunger
on the weekends. Each year we strive to meet more of our children’s needs by raising money through
grants, sponsorships, and fundraisers.
Consequently, we are pleased to announce our first fundraiser. Our Faces of Hunger and
Poverty Fundraiser Dinner featuring the ‘Empty Bowl Project’ will be November 10th, 2018 at 6:30 at the
Hampton Inn in Lakewood. Our goal of $25,000.00 seems lofty, but hopefully with the help of generous
funding provided by our community, it can be met.
Please help us achieve our goal by making a donation for our silent auction. We will rely on
donated items to keep our costs low, therefore providing more food for our children.
Would you consider donating an item to our auction? A couple of guidelines are:  Market value must be greater than $25.00
 Items must be new
If you have merchandise or an item that fits these guidelines, please fill out the attached
information slip and send it back to us in the self-addressed and stamped envelope or send us the
donation directly. Someone will be in touch with you to discuss your contribution!
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Please visit our website, www.JeffcoEats.org for more

Paula Redig, Chairman of Advisory Board for Gala
