Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino Set to Host 9th Annual Million Meals Gala: Casino Royale

Limited Early Bird Tickets Available Soon

(Riverside, CA – July 13, 2021) – Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB) will be giving Inland Empire residents the opportunity to experience a dazzling benefit casino night at its Riverside Distribution Center on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at the 9th Annual Million Meals Gala – Casino Royale. Limited early bird tickets are available beginning July 15, 2021.

 “For the past 9 years, our gala has offered an opportunity to raise money to support the distribution of food—a chronic barrier to financial stability in our community,” said Stephanie Otero, Chief Executive Officer at FARSB. “This year, after the pandemic forced so many out of jobs and into a position of need, we want to set the bar higher and secure more meals for local residents. That means raising $143,000– enough funds to secure one million meals for families experiencing hunger,” said Otero.

With expectations for a sold out event, FARSB has prepared a night-to-be-remembered, featuring live music, casino game tables, live and silent auctions, a gourmet dinner, and award ceremony all to benefit food-insecure neighbors in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, J.D., CEO of the Feeding America National Organization, former Executive Vice President at Walmart, and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 will offer a one-of-a-kind keynote speech.

Beginning July 15, 2021, a limited number of early-bird tickets will be available at $75 per person or $140 per couple.  Beginning September 6, 2021, the remaining general admission tickets will be made available at $85 per person or $160 per couple.
