Financial Support
We as a community must find ways to live together in harmony and learn to appreciate one another's cultures and traditions. The Community Dinner encourages people from all sectors of the community to join together to share a meal, enjoy entertainment and build lasting friendships. Last year over 600 people enjoyed a meal and musicale highlighting the rich talent and generosity that characterize Orange County. We hope that you will want to be a part of the Eighteenth Annual Community Dinner and will consider sponsoring a family.

We have three levels of support for the dinner, Platinum at $500, Gold at $200, and Silver at $100.

Feed a Family of Four for $22.00

A donation of $22.00 will feed two adults and two children. Help if you can! Click here to donate. Under "Choose a Fund" in the dropdown menu labeled "select a fund," scroll down and select "Community Dinner."

Feeding 700 people and all of our entertainers is a daunting task. Mildred Council, from Mama Dip's Kitchen, will coordinate the menu and, together with the Carolina Inn, will provide the basis of the Dinner's main course. We will need additional food and again this year we are hoping to get many local restaurants and businesses involved in this celebration.

Last year over ninety organizations, including twenty-five restaurants, gave generously to the event. Your contribution is tax deductible, and, as a participant you will be recognized as a contributor in all our publicity, on our website and at the Dinner. The event will be held on Sunday, April 10, 2016, at 1:00 pm in the McDougle Schools Cafeteria in Carrboro.

The Community Dinner is not a fundraising but a community building event and our fiscal agent is The Orange County Department of Human Rights and Relations. All food donations go directly to the dinner and most of the financial support buys tickets for many people with disabilities, including economically challenged families.
