The 975 guests at the fourth annual Feeding Matters community luncheon Sept. 28 raised more than $265,000. The funds will be used to support the organization’s mission of creating a world in which children with pediatric feeding disorders will thrive.
The free event raises awareness about pediatric feeding disorders and the critical work of Feeding Matters through firsthand stories from individuals and families served. Amanda and Darin Proszek shared how Feeding Matters is supporting their family as their son Noah, age 2, struggles with pediatric feeding disorder. Ed Knight, JD, explained how his feeding disorder has affected his life, both personally and professionally.
Additional speakers for the luncheon included co-chairs Judy and Bill Schubert, Representative Heather Carter, CEO Chris Linn and founder Sharon Goldwater.
Jaburg Wilk was the presenting sponsor. Generous donors made it possible to offer a $100,000 matching gift at the event from Jacquie and Bennett Dorrance, Shannon and Bob Goldwater, The Ingebritson Family Foundation, Linda and Bill Langer, and Judy and Bill Schubert.
