“We are proud that this event has become an important fund-raiser for our local food pantry,” said Shannon Brock, Silver Thread’s Co-owner & Estate Manager. “The pandemic has placed a high demand on the food pantry, so our continued support is essential. We’re hoping for a great turnout and to raise even more than prior years.”
