Blessings in a Backpack
Andrew Paquette

Blessings in a Backpack’s 11th annual charity fundraiser black tie event took place Sept. 25 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club with 160 people in attendance. The event was attended by Iron Chef Jose Garces and raised nearly $100,000 for the Blessings In A Backpack program. The program currently serves five area schools. The goal is to ensure hunger free weekends for students in need. Chef Garces cooked, planned the menu, signed books for attendees and held discussions about the meal during the courses.
