Weekend scene: West Seattle Food Bank’s ‘Grand Affair’

This weekend began with a fun way to give to the West Seattle Food Bank. The report and photos were sent by WSFB development director Judi Yazzolino:

The West Seattle Food Bank wants to thank all those that joined us last night at our 4th annual ‘A Grand Affair’ benefit at The Sanctuary at Admiral. We had so much fun raising funds for the 12,700 individuals we serve here in our West Seattle community. Results will be in on Monday but we want to thank the generosity of our incredible West Seattle community.

Picture above is of our staff – Judi Yazzolino, Development Director; Tray Olds, Community Connector; Dick Haggart, Food Rescue; our illustrious Executive Director (with the fake cigar) Fran Yeatts; Lester Yuh, Operations Director; & Karla Marifjeren, Operations Manager.

Second picture – Dan Austin, Peel & Press; Rita Dixson, The Bridge; Heather Scott, Shadowland; Lora Radford, WS Junction Association, with WSFB’s Judi.

The annual Grand Affair is a Roaring Twenties-themed cocktail party, with casino-style gaming. Other community co-sponsors included WSB.

    We appreciate the Food Bank so much.   They have recently come to the rescue of someone we knew in need.   The person just lit up when they saw this food arrive.   It was special to see and we thank all those that help the Food Bank.   What an impact they have in helping our community.   Thank you!!!!!!

    Chris, love to hear this. I work with the West Seattle Food Bank gardens at the Solstice P-Patch. We send only our best organic produce to the food bank and this year it looks like we will break our record and send over 1,500 lbs. this season. One of our favorite things we send are heirloom, fully ripe, tomatoes. Usually, at least 400 lbs. a year. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
