A total of 45,000 euros was raised at the ‘Feed the Children’ charity dinner held on 26 September, which will now be donated to the Tartu, Võru, Valga and Põlva food banks in order to improve the transport and storage conditions of their foodstuffs. The main drinks sponsor for the event, which was held for the third time, was AS Prike, who this year also provided guests with Haage Natural Mineral Water.
The 45,000 euros raised at the event came from ticket revenue, an art auction and the generous support of sponsors. It will be donated in its entirety to Southern Estonian food banks.
Helping the food banks fulfil their mission by contributing their time, skills and good will to this year’s dinner, which was held at Siidrifarm, were the Leib restaurant team led by head chef Kristo Malm, the Noa Chef’s Hall team led by Orm Oja, Angelica Udeküll and the team from Wicca restaurant and Joel Ostrat from Meat Market.
Musicians from Southern Estonia – Trad.Attack!, Jarek Kasar and DJ Heidy Purga – provided the entertainment for the evening.
The main sponsor of the event was Swedbank, with additional sponsorship from Namespace and Harviker.
FruitExpress, Prike, Siidrifarm, Carmen Catering, Hansabuss and Videal were major supporters.
