Take a Bite Out of Hunger with 2nd. Harvest Fundraiser
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- 2nd. Harvest is "Taking a bite out of hunger", again this year. The third annual fundraiser took place at the Three Rivers Convention Center.
Everyone who attended got to taste food and drinks from more than 20 restaurants in the Tri-Cities and bid in the silent auction. 2nd. Harvest director says she's lucky to have such a generous community.
"We can't survive without community and donor support, everything we do is grant donor and community support and Tri-Cities never says no," said Kathye Kilgore, Director of 2nd. Harvest.
More than 500 people went to the event. Last year they raised $35,000 and this year they're shooting for $40,000.
Kilgore says all the money raised stays in Benton and Franklin counties, to fight the hunger issues facing our community.
