Host Your Own Event

Food & Friends is fortunate to have generous community members who find creative ways to support the mission of our organization. When you plan and host fundraising events to benefit Food & Friends, you help raise critical funds for our neighbors in need who are living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses.

Here are some ideas!

  • Celebrate your birthday, wedding, or another milestone by asking for donations to Food & Friends instead of gifts.
  • Plan a casual dress day hosted by your employer or one of its departments. In exchange for donating to Food & Friends, donors can wear jeans or casual clothes on Friday.
  • Hold a benefit concert at your local place of worship or school and donate proceeds to Food & Friends.
  • Host a happy hour at your favorite bar or restaurant. Ask the restaurant to donate a portion of their sales to Food & Friends.
  • Plan a run or bike ride where attendees raise money in order to participate.

To make sure that fundraising is easy and stress-free, Food & Friends can even provide you with a personalized online donation form for your event.
