‘Feed the Core’ Fundraiser for White Center Food Bank Hits $15k Mark
Avalon Glassworks, which has been creating and selling fundraiser ‘Feed the Core’ Apples, hit the $15,000 donation mark for the White Center Food Bank, with apple #375 last week.
“The premise of the project is simple,” reads an announcement. “Each apple is $80; half of that covers Avalon’s production expenses and the other half goes directly to the White Center Food Bank, providing approximately 200 pounds of food translating to 75,000 pounds of food generated by the project.”
Shannon Felix, Avalon’s co-owner said:
“We get a lot of acknowledgement from White Center Food Bank. The director, Richard Jump, is always so graciously appreciative. It lets us know that we are really making a difference.”
Headshot’s photographer Lena Eivy, who snapped the landmark photo above added:
“I believe strongly in the benefits of helping everyone in a group to be successful in order to strengthen the group as a whole. The White Center Food Bank makes our community strong by helping those who need it most.”
Headshots garnered another $420 for White Center Food Bank that day.
In May 2011, Avalon Glassworks’ Feed the Core apple series hit the $10,000 donation mark for White Center Food Bank– an achievement and goal that many artists might never be able to accomplish – that is, until hitting $15,000 mark with apple #375 just last week.
Avalon Glassworks has created for White Center Food Bank an extended community that draws together fellow professionals and art lovers to create something truly magical.
