Meals on Wheels Durham hosted its annual gala
at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club to help raise funds for our hungry, homebound neighbors. The eveningâ€™s festivities included a silent auction, cocktails, music by Southern Routes and live poems by The Poetry Fox. All of the nearly $80,000 in proceeds raised from the fundraiser will go directly to helping the organization reach even more people in need this year.
