5th Annual WINE TASTING
Together, we raised over $65,000 to produce our weekly TABLE of PLENTY
suppers and to respond to the growing needs of our coastal community for another year!
What I remember most is seeing the JOY we all had — over 400 people enjoyed the evening at I.D.E.S., while we did together what we couldn’t do alone to benefit our neighbors in need.
By the end of the 2016, TOP served 7,800 meals in the 52 weeks. This was made possible by our dedicated all-volunteer TABLE of PLENTY and WINE TASTING Teams that have served faithfully with love and steadfast conviction to our mission and ministry since its beginning. We also remain deeply grateful for the leadership, creative influences, and the wisdom that has built and supported the TABLE of PLENTY since 2012: Our founding fathers, Fr. Charlie Fermeglia and Clyde Beffa and his wife, Kay, and our wine tasting mentor extraordinaire, Kerri Beffa Conlon. We also recognize the role of our invaluable community partnerships with Senior Coastsiders, No Strings Attached, Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, Potrero Nuevo Farm, First National Bank of Northern California, Sunlight Giving, HMB Chamber of Commerce, Job Train, and the learning
community of Notre Dame de Namur University, including The Sr. Dorothy Stang Center for Social Justice and Community Engagement. Bless you and thank you all!
