The Governors Village Annual Pool Party will be held Saturday, August 22, 2015, beginning at 4:00pm at the pool in Governors Park.
The Social Committee has been busy planning this event, which includes a catered dinner for community residents and an opportunity to support the Food Bank of Central and Eastern Carolina.
Donations and Raffle To Support Food Bank
Governors Village tackles hunger! Yes, you read right! Too many people go hungry and they don’t necessarily live in Africa or Asia! They live minutes away from our neighborhood! The Social Committee knows how generous this community can be and we think we can make a difference!
Every year we raise food and money for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern Carolina at our Pool Party in an effort to improve the lives of others less fortunate in the broader community.
This year, in addition to accepting food and tax deductible monetary donations (cash or check to Food Bank), we will host a raffle at the pool party. Each family will be given one FREE raffle ticket with additional tickets available for sale at the pool entrance: $1 per ticket or 6 tickets for $5. Watch for the flyer this weekend that will include your free ticket! Remember, for every dollar raised, the Food Bank is able to distribute ten dollars worth of food in 34 counties. The Food Bank has guidelines for food donations.
Diane Talley is seeking ideas and donation items for this raffle by August 15. Read more about how you can participate: Request For Raffle Donations (PDF)
