On Jan. 31 Fat Boys Barbecue in Clovis sponsored a fundraiser to benefit the Food Bank’s Food for Kids Weekend Backpack Program. Quite a crowd turn out for the event as demonstrated by the few seats left available and an overflowing parking lot.
After a night of dining, donations and a live auction, over $2600 was raised to benefit the Backpack Program. The funds raised will be used to purchase food and supplies for the growing program. Within the last week the number of students involved in the program increased from 477 to 483.
The Food Bank wants to thank the community and Fat Boys for their generosity! Because of their help, the Backpack Program will continue to grow and benefit children in eastern New Mexico.
