It’s a wonderful occasion when people can come together for something joyful and help thousands of people at the same time.
That occasion materialized on Sunday, April 28, at Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Though the Morrison Center hosted four performances, 180 people bought tickets from The Idaho Foodbank especially for this special benefit presentation. Those tickets generated $32,519, and with the net proceeds the Foodbank will be able to provide about 63,000 meals for hungry families across Idaho.
About 120 people chose to buy the premium tickets, which gave them a chance to meet cast members and sample the delicious snacks provided by Aramark.
“Our kids loved the show!” said Scott Kreiling, President of Regency Blue Shield of Idaho. “They couldn’t stop talking about it.”
Presenting sponsors Fred Meyer and Camille Beckman made this enchanted evening possible. They got additional support from Fredricksen Health Insurance and Regence BlueShield of Idaho. We are extremely grateful to them, to the cast of the show, to the Morrison Center and to everyone who made this event such a success. The Idaho Press Tribune was our excellent media partner, and Aramark took superb care of us and our guests once again.
Thank you all so much for being so generous and easy to work with.
