Every year, SOS Meals on Wheels hosts a variety of events designed to connect with our community, celebrate the work we do, raise some money, and hopefully have a little fun too. Here is the latest and greatest of recent events and those that are coming up. Why don’t you join us for the next one?
Sip & Swirl for seniors
Our first ever wine and paint party was a blast! Staff, volunteers, friends, family, board members and even a few new additions to the SOS community all came together for a lovely, laughter-filled evening. Wine was sipped. Paint was swirled. Funds were raised. All-in-all, a great event. Who’s in for the next one?
11th annual Spring luncheon
This year’s Luncheon was held at the San Leandro Senior Center on May 18th. Despite inclement weather outside, we had a great turnout and it was all smiles inside. The Golden Gate Young Marines helped serve up barbeque with all the fixins. The Raffle and Silent Auction were a hit (Helicopter Tours, Southwest Flights, and Giant TVs, oh my!). A touching video produced ALL IN Alameda County left us all misty eyed as we were reminded of the real reason we all showed up—for the Seniors Who Count on Us.
margaritas & meals
Back by popular demand, SOS Meals on Wheels held another summertime FUNdraiser at the famous Castro Valley eatery Don Jose’s Mexican Restaurant. On Sunday, August 25th, tables were filled with Castro Valley locals and SOS Meals on Wheels supporters from near and far. Over the course of the evening, we ate, we drank, we laughed, and we raffled. By the end of the night, bellies and hearts were full and we had raised more than $3,000 in support of the important work we do day in and day out on behalf of vulnerable seniors in our community.
