This is an event you must ad your busy calendar. ModestoView loves the Salvation Army and my band Third Party donates 100% of our performance gigs to non-profits. One of the best non-profits that does the most good is Salvation Army. They deliver an extremely high percent of their revue directly to programs, over 85%! They help the needy in our neighborhood and if you ever wonder if people that are truly in need of a daily meal can get one, they can, through Salvation Army. So it is only fitting that Salvation Army has a meal, many of them in fact all across town as a benefit. My band will be playing at Harvest Moon this year and there are many opportunities all over the city to get involved and be a part of the this excellent event. Here are the details below.

The classic car on this year’s “One Night Dinner” invitations will have a Salvation Army emblem on the hood—watch for them in the mail. Also, it unfolds to an old-fashioned car radio dial with stations for the homes and restaurants. These are to promote the theme of “A Night of Cruisin’ for The Army”, appropriate for Modesto. If you do not receive an invitation in the mail this coming week, call the office at 522-3209 or email carole.stuart@usw.salvationarmy.org and one will be sent to you so that you can choose the dinner you would like to attend. There are favorites from past years and several new venues as well, on March 23 and 26. The 18 local homes and restaurants donate their locations and all the food, and entertainers and chefs donate their time and talents to make it a night of cruisin’ to remember.

The theme and design were chosen by the One-Night Committee headed up by Kenni Friedman and Stacey Filippi, in conjunction with Megan Ott and Julie Orona of Never Boring Design who created the art work and invitations. Never Boring has donated their work for this Salvation Army fundraiser and Willey Printing has donated a portion of the printing costs. The 18 local homes and restaurants donate their locations and all the food, and entertainers and chefs donate their time and talents to make it a night of cruisin’ to remember.
