The funds raised from Dining to Deliver Gala will be used to deliver meals and supportive services to vulnerable seniors.
Every day, 10,000 people turn 70 in this country, and in Contra Costa County, the elderly are the largest growing segment of the population. Seniors living on a fixed income face the cost of rising food prices, a fragile support system, isolation, and health and mobility issues that contribute to food insecurity. Since 2020, Meals on Wheels Diablo Region has been delivering to 40% more seniors, and this past year, we delivered over 500,000 meals, made over 15,000 Friendly Visits and Calls to help prevent isolation, made 228 home modifications that prevented falls, and helped seniors with social issues including depression, evictions, and elder abuse. The need for our services will only increase, making the Dining to Deliver Gala so important.
This 1920's themed event will include a live and silent auction, dinner and dancing to a live band, and an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of vulnerable seniors.
MEET OUR MASTER OF CEREMONIES
We are pleased that Paul Heggen, award-winning Chief Meteorologist at KPIX-TV will join Meals on Wheels Diablo Region at the Dining to Deliver Gala!
Paul has earned several awards for weather coverage over the years. Recently, he won the "Weather Anchor" Emmy for his work at KPIX during the 2020 season — that brought his total number of Emmy Awards up to seven! He has also won multiple "Best Weathercast" and "Best Weather Anchor" awards from the Associated Press and Society of Professional Journalists. In 2019, he was named "Weathercaster of the Year" by the Radio, Television, and Digital News Association of the Carolinas.
Besides the weather, Paul has a commitment to fighting food insecurity. We are happy that he will be the MC at Dining to Deliver!
The Timebandits are Solano County's Premier Dance Band. A family of talented, well-versed musicians bringing a powerful message of live music and fun!
