MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)--- Help kick-off this year’s NBC15 Share Your Holidays to eliminate hunger campaign and help us provide “One More Meal” at the Power of ONE Luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 1.
You are invited to attend the luncheon from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Alliant Energy Center. The cost is $55 per person or $400 for a reserved table of eight. Your $55 donation will provide 165 meals.
This year, the first $20,000 raised at the event will be matched by Affiliated Engineers, Inc. They hope to raise a total of $40,000 in honor of their 40th anniversary.
The luncheon is hosted by NBC15 and the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. It will provide a networking opportunity, an inspirational message about the Power Of One More Meal, and the announcement of our 2018 Be Like Mike award recipients. NBC15 Share Your Holidays campaign began 23 years ago in 1996 with former NBC15 Anchor Mike McKinney. Decades later, NBC15 continues to recognize those who embody Mike's charitable spirit with the "Be Like Mike" award.
In 2017, the NBC15 Share Your Holidays campaign raised a record 4.18 million meals which is more than ever before. Our goal this year is “One More Meal”.
One in six children in southwestern Wisconsin faces hunger that's according to the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. NBC15 Share Your Holidays aims to help eliminate hunger in our area.
The Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin provides up to 14 million meals each year by distributes food to local food pantries here at home.
