Golf club members raise over $21,000 for food bank

Staff~ 3/2/2015

SCOTTSDALE – The members at Mirabel Golf Club recently hosted a Ladies’ Luncheon and food drive to benefit the Snack Pack program at the Foothills Food Bank. Through their efforts, the luncheon and a food drive at the club brought in $21,500 and 225 pounds of food.

"Thanks to the continued generosity of the women at Mirabel, many kids that rely on their schools to provide breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday will have nutritious meals over the weekend through the Snack Pack program," said Angie Dietrick, Mirabel member and one of the event’s organizers.

The Snack Pack program at the Foothills Food Bank provides food items for preschool, grade school, and high school students to take home with them each weekend. The program aims to help students who may be without food when they are not at school and benefit from free or reduced lunch costs.

In addition to supporting the Foothills Food Bank, Mirabel members organize a number of events and fundraisers throughout the year to support a variety of local nonprofit organizations.
