Dr. Ray Solano's
7th Annual Food Drive & Fundraiser

5th Annual Food Drive & Fundraiser

to benefit

In 2007, Dr. Ray Solano was in search of a local charity to help those in our own backyards...The Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) was a perfect fit!
The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington DC metro area by acquiring food and distributing it through its network of partner agencies; and educating, empowering and enlightening the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition.

Every year in November, Dr. Ray Solano sponsors a Food Drive & Fundraiser to benefit the CAFB. The focus of this event is to raise awareness and most importantly collect food/funds for those in our own backyards that are less fortunate.

**For admission, each guest is required to donate at least ($15 value) of canned, boxed food, and/or hygiene products. Please be generous. In lieu of food donations, you may also make a cash/check contribution at the door.**

During the course of the evening, guests have an opportunity to mingle with local celebrities and pillars from the community. In addition, guests can take part in a silent auction consisting of business services, sports memorabilia, tickets to events, health services, restaurant gift cards, vacation getaways, and more. 100% of the proceeds benefit the CAFB! Furthermore, the restaurant host (MadFox) will donate a portion of their proceeds to CAFB for those guests that choose to dine. Last year, we had over 250 guests come through the door. To date, we have collected over 10,000 pounds of food!

In addition to local media personalities, we expect attendance from athletes representing local area sports teams. This year WPGC - 95.5 has joined our efforts and will be continuously announcing the event. Midday Host "Sunni" will be our special host for the evening.

Here are some of the (new this year) social media links we're using to raise awareness and for event updates:
