Friends at the Table

Friends at the Table


Summertime is coming and that means fun! We invite you to participate in a new event being planned as a benefit for Food For Thought called "Friends at the Table." Our goal is simple: party with our friends and keep food on the table of people living with HIV/AIDS in Sonoma County.

Friends at the Table is ten days of private events - dinners, pool parties, BBQ's, brunches, cocktail parties, bocce ball tournaments, whatever - we leave the creativity to you. Hosts invite their friends to dine and donate between July 1st and 10th. Then we celebrate with a party for our Hosts on July 16th at Nancy Boy in Sebastopol - a "Thank You & Awards Party" where we announce our fund raising results and provide Awards for best theme, most guests, largest donation, etc. All for summer fun because 100% of all donations made during this first "Friends at the Table" event will directly support our 685 clients and replace reduced government funding for people affected by HIV/AIDS in Sonoma County.

If you would like to be one of our hosts and throw a party of any scale or size on your own or with a party-partner, just let us know. We will assign you a Hosting Coach and introduce you to our Resources Team. Yes, we have volunteers waiting to assist you in planning and executing your private event ... from bartending to clean-up, flower arrangements, desserts, help with decor ... just ask and we'll try to help.

If you can host a party or help as a volunteer on our Resources Team, please let us know before June 1st and we will be able to provide you with more information and details including a Host Party Guide and complete Party Kit - just click here to email us at Food For Thought or call our Food Bank at 707-887-1647 x102 to discuss.
