Food For Friends partnered with Music Box Foundation for a Thanksgiving event held at the Fire station at 6843 South Harper during the afternoon of November 17, 2018.
There were more than 150 guests from all over the community and surrounding areas that came out to feast on the magnificent dinner. The meal consisted of turkey, dressing, pasta, greens, sweet potatoes, jello and fresh dinner rolls. We had youth, adults, veterans and seniors guests. Everyone had a great time. Some stayed and some guests took their plate with them. Thanks to Food For Friends partner, Lee N Eddies Catering, for providing the meal for this event. The meal was delicious and tasty.
For entertainment, there were performances from Music Box Foundation Community Band as well as Senior Line Dancers. Everyone enjoyed the dancing and some even participated.
Also in attendance were dignitaries from the Mayors office, CPD and guests from WGN Television. Everyone had a great time and was very pleased and thankful for the meal.
Overall the event was a success. Music Box Foundation is grateful for the partnership.
