Last Tuesday, September 25, nearly 700 guests joined honorary chairs Amy and Patrick Armstrong at the historic Arizona Biltmore to raise more than $290,000 during Feeding Matters’ 6th Annual Community Luncheon. The event also honored Valley businesswoman and philanthropist Joan Lowell with Feeding Matters’ inaugural Visionary Award.
“There is plenty of research that suggests nutrition is the foundation for growth and development. Yet, today, pediatric feeding disorders are a silent issue, says Feeding Matters President and CEO Chris Linn. “The time and generosity of our supporters, partners, and donors will help Feeding Matters give a voice to the more than 2.3 million children under the age of five in the United States who experience severe pediatric feeding disorders.”
Presented by Jaburg|Wilk Attorneys at Law and the Armstrong Family Foundation, the annual fundraiser is underwritten by local sponsors, including the Arizona Community Foundation, Lerner & Rowe Gives Back, Mercy Care, Miracle Mile Deli, and Shamrock Farms. Additionally, the Dorrance Family Foundation has provided a dollar-for-dollar match challenge for the first $50,000 raised.
