4 Reasons to join us at the Night to Fight Hunger Gala!

Hello Hunger Fighters! The Night to Fight Hunger Gala is right around the corner, so here are 4 exciting reasons for you to join us at our inaugural event on November 7th!


Reason #1 Memorable Venue

We’ll set sail on The Spirit of Philadelphia, a beautiful ship that’s part of the Spirit Cruises fleet. Our event will be held on both of the ship’s outdoor decks. The live auction and main presentation for the night will be held on the lower deck, while the silent auction and our signature cocktail will be served on the upper deck. Don’t miss out on the chance to take some Instagram-worthy photos of the Philadelphia skyline from our cruise along the Delaware. We promise you the scenery will be breathtaking.


Reason #2 Astonishing Auction Items

Our auction items include a signed jersey from Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jenkins, luxury brand accessories, and tickets to some of the season’s hottest shows. We won’t give everything away in this blog post, so you’ll have to come and see for yourselves!


Reason #3 Roaring 20’s Dress

Bring your feathers, fringe, and spats because this party is going to roar! Don’t worry, our Gatsby theme doesn’t mean you have to come dressed as your favorite character from the 1925 Fitzgerald novel. The dress for the Night to Fight Hunger is business casual, but if you have some pearls, an old silver pocket watch, or a pair of opera gloves lying around we’d love to see you wear them!


Reason #4 Support Our Work to End Hunger

The Coalition connects over 730,000 people in the Greater Philadelphia region to the resources they need to put food on their tables. We support a network of local food pantries, operate a SNAP Hotline, provide education and outreach, and advocate with policymakers to address the immediate, short-term, and long term needs of those experiencing food insecurity in their communities. By joining us, you help us make all this happen!


Let’s be honest, there are way more than 4 reasons to join us at the Night to Fight Hunger Gala. The Coalition’s goal is to raise $30,000 to continue our work to end hunger in the Philadelphia region, and there’s no one we’d rather have supporting us than all of you.

The Night to Fight Hunger Gala and Fundraiser will be held on Thursday, November 7th from 6:30 – 9:00 pm. You can purchase tickets, make a donation, become an event sponsor, and learn more about the Gala at

We can’t wait to see you all there!
