Black Tie, Blue Jeans & Bingo

Greetings!

Family Meals is hosting a Black Ties Blue Jeans & Bingo Event on Saturday, May 1 at the Pelican Yacht Club in Fort Pierce. Tickets are priced at $100.00 each and includes passed appetizers, a plated dinner, endless candy bar and one bingo card. A cash bar is offered for your convenience and pleasure. Increase your odds by purchasing additional bingo cards!

Join us for a fun evening with mixed formal and carefree! This event is fun, flirty, offering delicious cuisine, and music.  Guests are encouraged to wear either Blue Jeans, Black tie, or both. Guests may wear denim and diamonds, high-tops, jackets and jewels, cocktail dresses as well as gowns.

We are offering five bingo games. Bingo game winners will receive a prize valued at least $500.00! That’s right, if you are the winner of one of the five Bingo games, your prize is valued at least $500.00!   This year three of five Bingo prizes are $500.00 cash/gift cards.

This year we will host a “Wine Pull”. For a $25.00 donation you pick a numbered cork. The numbered cork matches a numbered bottle of wine.  Two of the wine bottles have a $100.00 bill attached. You walk away with a bottle of wine and if luck has it, a $100.00 bill too!

We offer incredible silent auction items too. The committee has been busy collecting items for bidding.  If you have an auction item to donate, please let us know. We are happy to pick it up.

100% of profits from the Black Ties Blue Jeans & Bingo event will go towards our Thanksgiving 2021 Outreach. Thanksgiving 2020 and Easter Outreach 2021 has depleted our funds. We went over our goal of helping 2,200 Treasure Coast families this past Easter. Family Meals, Inc. is 100% volunteer, with no paid staff.  100% profits stay in our community.

We have many event volunteer opportunities and needs. We need help to set up and/or tear down after the event. Please sign up on this link to volunteer.    https://volunteersignup.org/QFQB3

You may volunteer by doing simple things like ironing and moving tables.  Help with these types of things are needed and appreciated.

Please reply to this email if you would like to purchase tickets. You can purchase tickets via paypal  familymealsfl@gmail.com , you can call us 772-210-0900 or reply to this email. We will get back to you immediately.

Easter Outreach 2020 postponed

Family Meals, Inc. was founded and created with our mission statement at the forefront of our commitment to our community.

Our mission statement: “Provide the ingredients for a holiday home cooked family meal for the working poor, and for families who may not qualify for food stamps or free school lunch programs. Our goal is to create an outreach program to encourage family mealtimes by providing families the tools to get back to the basics; mealtime together.”

Family Meals was not founded to sustain families with food.  Families cannot rely daily on the donated food from Family Meals, Inc. The backbone of Family Meals’ focus is to help families understand the importance of sharing family meals.

We only have up to three outreaches each year to make the delivered  food special and meaningful. We provide table talk questions and mealtime prayers in our meal bags so families can get to know each other around their tables.

Family Meals’ made the decision to postpone Easter Outreach 2020. We are unable to  purchase food to facilitate an outreach. We also have our volunteers’ and our families’ health in mind and would never put anyone at risk or hardship.

When we are safe and can purchase food, we will begin planning our next outreach. We will need your help at that time.

Thank you for your support and thoughtful prayers for our community during these difficult and uncertain times.

Black Ties, Blue Jeans & Bingo!
