Special Holiday Meals Nov. 25 and Dec. 19 & Kids’ Day Dec. 22!
Sisters is celebrating our family, our community of volunteers and all the friends that make this place special. We are planning a very special holiday BBQ feast on Tuesday, November 25th! For this day, all of the meals have been donated by an anonymous friend of Sisters. What a wonderful gift!
We’ll also be sharing a delicious Customer Appreciation Turkey Dinner on Friday, December 19th. So come down and join us! There will be extra time-slot reservations available, so you won’t be able to say no.
Kids’ Day on Monday, December 22nd is another special day in the Sisters’ Cafe especially for families. We are planning a sweet day of games and activities for parents and children to be together and have some fun. There will be a special meal for the kiddos, and we are gathering gifts for parents to be able to select for their children for ages 1-12.
If you are looking to volunteer, please take a look at our volunteer program ahead of time.
We look forward to seeing you!
Share your Love for Sisters with Care and Share!
by Brenda Morgan, Development Co-Manager, Special Events
How many times have you planned a holiday party and thought “this year, I want to have fun and do something different, something meaningful”?
Here’s how! Have a Care and Share house party, or host a special benefit event at your place of business. More and more of Sisters’ friends and supporters are having fun hosting Care and Share gatherings and other benefit events. One party host, Joel D., said it was incredibly easy, enjoying time with family and friends. It was a potluck with music and dancing, and guests felt good about making a collective donation. The synergy grew into a heartwarming gathering, and the good feelings were paid forward with a $415 donation to Sisters.
Last year, we were thrilled to raise $6,460 from Care and Share house parties and special benefit events! Here’s how a Care and Share house party works: you host a party, invite 10 guests or more, and ask each to donate $20. In November and December during our Together at the Table Matching Gift Challenge, the $200 total that you raise will be matched $.50 cents on the dollar, turning the $200 into $300. Partner with a friend, or hold your party at a local pub. We’ve heard of a Trivial Pursuit night, and other game competitions. Be creative and fun! We will support you by providing material about Sisters, and if you’d like, someone from Sisters will attend to speak about our programs.
Volunteering for upcoming Special & Appreciation Meals in November & December
Sisters will be having four “Special Meals” in November and December to celebrate our community. For most of these dates the meal will be no cost hospitality meals, still using our time-slot reservations. We throw down a great meal that fills everyone’s hearts and bellies with good food memories to last all year. More information on Volunteering for these special dates!
