Hearts 4 Hunger 2019: Our Best Year Yet!


Contributed by Michael Consalo

Laughter and music filled the air, the night of Saturday, February 2nd, at The Palmer Train Depot, during Hearts 4 Hunger. The annual event held by Matsu Food Bank was a huge hit, with a packed depot, filled with people conversing and traveling from table to table, making bids on silent auction items, including an autographed Eagles album. Marty Metiva was the MC and helped guide the evening, as The Jerry Wessling Band rocked new songs from their setlist to a busy hall. The "Wine Pull" offered guests a mystery wine, valued anywhere from $10-100 for only $10 a pull and the silent auction items left in the hands of happy guests one at a time before the live auction erupted around 7pm.

Alaska Events & Catering provided an amazing meal, with Beef Tenderloin served on salt blocks – locking in the flavor. They also helped raise money through a dessert auction, in which tables bid on their favorite desserts! The event was truly something special and we couldn't have done it without our wonderful sponsors. Thanks to everyone who attended and a special thanks to everyone that helped make Hearts 4 Hunger better than ever! Stay in touch for next year's event, already in the works...
