Party for the Pantry 2016

The party will take place next Friday, December 9th at 7 p.m. at the Pembroke Country Club. Here's quick rundown of everything you need to know. If you still have questions, contact Matt York at mattyorkpembroke@gmail.com and we'll get you an answer.

What about tickets? Tickets can be purchased at the door. However, we recommend you consider buying tickets in advance ($15 for individuals, $25 for families) online at this link. It will just help us get everybody through the door faster.

Money is tight this year, is there a way I can have the admission fee waived? Yes, a generous family in Pembroke donated money to help those that might need a little bit of financial assistance get in for free. If you'd like to take advantage of that, please email mattyorkpembroke@gmail.com and we'll put you on the list, no questions asked.

I can't attend but would like to donate? You can donate to the Pantry by going through our Eventbrite page https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2016-party-for-the-pantry-tickets-28622988128?aff=eac2 or mailing the Pantry a check directly to the Pembroke Food Pantry at P.O. Box 295, Pembroke, MA 02359.

Should I bring canned goods? You should. Janet LaBerge from
Good Deeds/Dirty Deeds will have her truck set-up in front of the entrance. There should be people there to assist put the food in the truck. You can also bring a dessert for people at the party to share. We had a lot of desserts last year and it was fun.

How do I pay? You can make checks out directly to the Pembroke Food Pantry. We also accept cash and credit cards. All money and food that we collect goes directly to the food pantry.

I have kids, will they have something to do? They will have a ton of things to do. We have Santa Clause there. Denise Hawes Photography will be taking pictures of the kids. Funtastic Faces will be doing free face-painting. There will be arts and crafts for the kids and we'll have twelve members of the high school wind ensemble playing some live Christmas music.

I don't have kids, should I go? You should go. We have a cash bar, free appetizers and desserts. We have many different auction and raffle items, a 50/50 raffle and a DJ.

How long does this party last? The party generally runs from roughly 7-10.

I have more questions what should I do? Email Matt York at mattyorkpembroke@gmail.com.
