Knock out hunger
April 27, 2015, 05:00 AM

Nearly 400 guests joined celebrity chef Martin Yan in the fight to end hunger at Samaritan House’s 23rd annual Main Event Fundraiser “Knock Out Hunger” Saturday, April 18. The evening began with dynamite drinks, five unique silent auctions and a photo opportunity for the premium ticket holders with Yan. As the emcee, Yan ran the action-packed program from center ring. Festivities included an elegant dinner, a live auction including a fund-a-need paddle raise for the food program, and even a surprise cooking demonstration from Chef Yan himself. Samaritan House CEO Bart Charlow thanked everyone who contributed to making the event possible. All proceeds from the event will benefit Samaritan House’s Food Services Program which provides over 156,000 hot meals and 40,000 bags of groceries annually to families in need in our community.
