We’re taking the fight against hunger to the sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast. Alabama Credit Union, will host the second annual, Bids, Brews & Beats Concert and Silent Auction benefiting Secret Meals on May 5 at the Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar from 1 – 5 p.m.
Guests can enjoy live music while supporting Secret Meals by bidding on great Silent Auction items. Through your generous donation of items, all proceeds from this event will go directly toward the purchase of Secret Meals weekend food packs for local schoolchildren in your area.
In 2008, Alabama Credit Union started Secret Meals For Hungry Children with just 18 schoolchildren. Today, the Secret Meals program serves over 2,500 children across the state by quietly slipping packages of food into their backpacks every Friday.
Along the Alabama Gulf Coast and Perdido Key area, we’re serving Gulf Shores Elementary, Fairhope Elementary, Pleasant Grove Elementary, Foley Elementary and Swift Elementary, totaling 200 children receiving weekend food packs through Secret Meals with plans to add additional schools this coming school year.
With a fundraising goal for these schools of $20,000, we are asking for your generous donation to the Silent Auction. Any item at any value will directly impact the life of a child in Alabama.
