Share the Harvest – November 2012

On October 12, 2012, the Downtown Daily Bread second annual fundraiser, Share the Harvest took place at the Historic Harrisburg Association on N. Third Street, across from the Broad Street Market.

The former bank building sparkled with candles and twinkling lights, diamond studded white pumpkins and glittering gold and silver bamboo stalks, amid the building’s original marble and brass.  The guests enjoyed an assortment of wine and cheeses and specialty breads accompanied by appetizers followed by coffee and delicious homemade desserts. The ambience was enhanced by the sweet sound of the harp followed by that of the piano.

Donated art from the Paxtang Art Association decorated the walls along with other quality raffle items.  New this year, silent auction items were presented including a cocktail party for 20 at a private home and a gourmet cooking class and dinner at the Cornerstone Coffee House in Camp Hill. (If you are interested in the class, please let me know as there are still some spaces available.)

On the whole, the Share the Harvest Event was another wonderful evening and more importantly, a successful fundraiser for Downtown Daily Bread.  At the time of this writing, I believe we can say that almost $20,000 came to DDB because of this festive evening. If that means that funding is available for 10,000 meals in 2013, we can be pleased and proud of our efforts.

Maybe we will see you at a special event next year when DDB celebrates 30 years of service to the community.  It is not too early to commit to making another magical evening for Downtown Daily Bread.  The people who will benefit need your support.

Best wishes from all the staff at Downtown Daily Bread.

Happy Thanksgiving!

-Elaine Strokoff, DDB Executive Director
