CAN MOUNTAIN RIDGE MAKE IT A FOUR-PEAT?
Three-time champion Mountain Ridge will face its toughest test ever in the 2010 National Student Food Drive, with 29 other high schools from around the Valley gunning for their crown and the right to take home the John Van Hengel Memorial Trophy.
Can the Mountain Lions do it again? Stay tuned.
Help your local school claim victory this year. Log on to http://www.firstfoodbank.org to learn how to make a donation to their virtual food drive page. Every dollar will allow the food bank to distribute seven meals into the community. Help young people in your neighborhood trying to make a positive impact.
NOBODY DOESN’T LIKE SARA LEE – ESPECIALLY ST. MARY’S
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank Rita George-Sanchez our good friends at Sara Lee for their involvement in the 2010 National Student Food Drive. Sara Lee not only provided delicious deserts for the NSFD kickoff event on Oct. 12, but will be handing out goodies at our radio and television remotes at seven high school campuses over the next month.
Time and again, Sara Lee had stepped forward to help the Food Bank promote events and feed volunteers who help St. Mary’s year-round. Many thanks. No wonder … nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee.
STREETS OF NEW YORK CONTINUES GENEROUS SUPPORT OF ST. MARY’S
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank Street of New York Pizza (Second Street and Camelback) for providing pizza to all the students and guests taking part in the Oct. 12 kickoff of the 2010 National Student Food Drive.
Jimmy Deguglielmo has been a great friend to St. Mary’s, not only catering the NSFD but also each of our five Rock N’ Box events this summer. No one goes away hungry. Thanks so much to Jimmy and the whole gang at Streets of New York for joining the fight against hunger in Arizona.
MARTY MANNING AND KEZ CONTINUES SUPPORT OF NATIONAL STUDENT FOOD DRIVE
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank KEZ (99.9 FM) and especially our good friend Marty Manning for their strong support of the 2010 National Student Food Drive.
Marty not only served as our emcee for the Oct. 12 kickoff drive meeting, but will again host four KEZ morning radio remote events. This year Marty will head out to Ironwood High School in Glendale, Mountain Ridge High School in Glendale, Mountain View High School in Mesa and Millennium High School in Goodyear, bearing gifts from Sara Lee, 3D Tea and the Phoenix Coyotes. Marty, who was a 2010 recipient of the St. Mary’s Media Champion Award, again brought his St. Mary’s truck bank stuffed with quarters, providing more than 200 meals in addition to all his time and effort.
Thanks KEZ and thanks Marty. Here we go again …
PHOENIX COYOTES CONTINUE SUPPORT OF 2010 NATIONAL STUDENT FOOD DRIVE
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance wishes to thank the Phoenix Coyotes for their continued sponsorship of the 2010 National Student Food Drive. And big thanks to Howler for his appearance at our Oct. 12 NSFD kickoff events and for selecting the four schools that will receive radio remote events during the drive.
The Coyotes will cap off the 2010 NSFD with a St. Mary’s Night at Jobing.com Arena on Nov. 27 when the Coyotes will face the Anaheim Ducks. There will be a 50-50 raffle benefitting the food bank and a special between-period ceremony to award the John Van Hengel Cup to the winning school and also recognize the other school and individual champions.
In between, Howler will make selected personal appearances (bearing Coyotes stuff) at the KEZ radio and KPHO television remotes during the drive. The Coyotes open their home season Saturday night against those nasty, smelly Detroit Red Wings … so root them on to another great season.
