NOURISH makes a healthy debut
More than 400 people attended the inaugural NOURISH event at the Hyland headquarters on February 27. The evening was planned to raise funds for Village Project.
Guests were treated to several different stations featuring delicious dishes prepared from Village Project recipes, as well as live, silent and Chinese auctions. In addition, guests were given Village Project “passports” allowing them to explore the many endeavors of the organization, which provides meals and sustaining services to families experiencing cancer in the western suburbs, including Bay Village and Westlake.
NOURISH raised $26,000. The funds will assist Village Project in moving toward its goal of cooking meals four days each week, increasing from the current two days. This will allow Village Project to care for more families and provide the opportunity for more volunteers to serve.
Barb Harrell, executive director of Village Project, was thankful for the enthusiastic turnout, volunteer help, party space and wonderful food. “We are incredibly grateful to Hyland Software for hosting this event. The venue was perfect, and they could not have been more welcoming.” She added, “Marigold Catering was amazing: donating, preparing and presenting the event’s delicious, nutritious and beautiful food. NOURISH received rave reviews, and we look forward to making it an annual event.”
Next up for Village Project is the third annual Project Pedal which will take place during Destination Bay on June 18. Look for more details coming soon. For more information about Village Project, visit ourvillageproject.com or call 440-348-9401.
