October 9th FallFest 2004 to Benefit Meals On Wheels of San Francisco
San Francisco, CA September 29, 2004 -- Meals On Wheels (www.mowsf.org) -- the San Francisco nonprofit that "delivers hope" along with two meals a day to more than 1,100 homebound San Francisco seniors -- will receive the entire net proceeds from this year's annual FallFest 2004, October 9, 11am 'til 4pm, at San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza. Widely considered the Bay Area's premier culinary, wine and spirits event, FallFest 2004 celebrates the Bay Area's leading chefs, sommeliers, wine, and spirits. Visitors can meander through the European-style marketplace and sample food and drink from over 60 leading purveyors. Chefs such as Randy Saito, Martin Yan and Michael Tusk will demonstrate their craft, while 46 wineries offer tastes. SF Jazz and the Back Burner Blues Band will perform throughout the day.
"This is exactly the sort of event we like to be involved in," said Sima Dahi, Meals On Wheels Chief Executive Officer. "At Meals On Wheels, we work hard to minimize overhead costs, the result being that 87% of every dollar raised goes directly to assisting and feeding the elderly. FallFest is a delicious way to support those efforts."
Dedicated to serving meals and social services to homebound seniors, Meals On Wheels will celebrate their 35th year in San Francisco beginning with a holiday party this December 9th, and culminating with a Gala fundraising benefit in late May 2005. Meals On Wheels delivers two meals per day to over 1,100 homebound seniors, and a warm lunch each day to 200 more seniors at the Dorrwin Jones Senior Center. Among Meals On Wheels' clients are 126 seniors over 90 years of age.
FallFest 2004 is presented by the Embarcadero Center and San Francisco Magazine. For more information on FallFest 2004 call (415) 398-3595 x 300. www.sffallfest.com. For more information on Meals On Wheels call (415) 920-1111. www.mowsf.org
