GAMBIER — On Friday, Dec. 6, Kenyon College will host the Ninth Annual Snowflake Gala in support of Knox County Food For The Hungry. The event will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. in the Kenyon Athletic Center’s Multi-Activity Court, which will be transformed for the occasion. The evening’s program will conclude with a “fund-a-cause” auction, providing guests with opportunities to support both the food-gathering and social-service activities offered by Food For The Hungry.

Denise and Mark Ramser, Knox County volunteer leaders and philanthropists, will be recognized at the gala with the William A. Stroud Jr. Award for Community Service, presented annually for outstanding support of local charitable causes. Chairpersons for this year’s event are longtime Food For The Hungry supporters Peggy and Richard Mavis.

The Dec. 6 dinner, prepared by the chefs of AVI Food Systems, will feature a buffet of gourmet Italian favorites, prepared with locally sourced ingredients, with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.

Tickets for the 2019 Snowflake Gala include a contribution to Food For The Hungry (the exact amount of which will be provided after the event for tax purposes). Tickets may be reserved by calling Kenyon at 740-427-5111 or by visiting www.foodforthehungrycares.org, which offers online payment options. Tickets must be purchased no later than Friday, Nov. 22.

Proceeds from this annual event benefit needy families and individuals right here in Knox County. If you or your company would like to sponsor a dinner table or support the gala in some other way, please contact Kathryn Brechler Lake at 740-427-5111 or via email at lakek@kenyon.edu.
