Meals on Wheels Durham hosted its third annual Feed the Need Gala at the
Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club at the end of February. The organization, which
celebrates 45 years in our community this year, invited guests to enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner, a silent auction and dancing to the music of DJ SPIN toward the end of the evening. ABC11 Eyewitness News anchor Steve Daniels emceed the evening, which featured the debut of the nonprofit’s 2020 marketing video and remarks by then-current Executive Director Gale Singer Adland, who’s now in her well-earned retirement. Jason Peace steps into the role effective April 1. The gala raised more than $100,000, including $33,600 in instant donations that will help remove 20 people from the more than 300 on the nonprofit’s current waitlist. 12
