Golden Gala 2021
After Manna Cafe’s Golden Gala on November 5, the word we kept hearing from those who had attended was fun. “What a great event! That was so much fun!” We also noticed that folks couldn’t say enough about the food.
The night began with Polaroid snapshots, then live music and dinner consisting of peach glazed brisket and mojo pork with a white wine reduction. There were plenty of sides and an array of confections for dessert. Our guest speakers, Mayors Jim Durrett and Joe Pitts, took the floor, followed by Kevin Kennedy, Jr. Then came the presentation of awards. Finally, the highlight of the evening (something we’ve never done before but will definitely do again): a live auction, where the bidding got fast furious—all in good fun of course.
Auction items ranged from pieces by local artists to VIP tickets to an NHRA drag race. Gala attendees were generous, blessing Manna Cafe with funds that will go directly into assisting the hungry, homeless, and impoverished of our community through programs such as Mobile Cafe, Food Distribution, educational classes, and the emergency warming center.
It would be impossible to name every person who helped make this year’s gala such a successful, wonderful event, but you know who you are, and we hope you’ll accept our deep gratitude for your hard work, sacrifice, and generosity. May you be blessed ten-fold in return.
