St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters held their annual "Summer Fiesta" Party with Food Sponsors Con Edison and Macy's. Supporters from our Golf Outing, Crana Electric, Inc., Innovative Communications Concepts, Inc., and TPG Architecture hosted the event. Niles Restaurant staff prepared a wonderful Mexican buffet lunch for over 400 Food Pantry clients. Jim Phillips, Founder of TPG Architecture and some of his staff joined volunteers from Con Edison to serve the meal and greet the guests. Sombreros and piñatas decorated the room, and lively Latin music completed this "south of the border" themed party. The Affinia Manhattan Ballroom was packed with happy families from the Food Pantry who came for this delicious meal and to share a special time with friends. Guests received special treats as they left, and everyone agreed that this Fiesta was another great afternoon provided by St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

Over 400 Food Pantry clients were served the Mexican lunch.

Christine Chipurnoi of Wells Fargo Insurance Services joined the volunteers.

Piñatas held lollypops which were given to the guests as they left.
