Meals to Mend

Open Arms wines and dines guests, raising money to make sure others don’t have to go without meals

Who, What, Where: Open Arms Moveable Feast Gala, held at the Golden Valley Country Club, May 19.

Purpose: Open Arms, headquartered in Minneapolis, prepares and delivers meals free of charge to households affected by chronic and life-threatening illness.

Good Eats:  Limousines whisked over 500 guests to 45 local restaurants for elaborate multiple-course dinners. Then, guests rode back to the country club for dessert and dancing.

Song and Dance: Mingling to the sounds of Al’s Rockabilly, guests let their hair down and broke into swing dancing as the night progressed.

Feeding More: Between ticket sales and a silent auction, which included such prizes as belly-dancing classes and a week in Palm Springs, $250,000 was raised.
