Rochester, MI—October 19, 2023—On Sunday, October 15, 2023, SFL Companies hosted a Name That Tune fundraiser, generating over $10,000 for Blessings in a Backpack Avondale. The event took place at Whiskey Rae’s in Rochester Hills and involved a Name That Tune game, raffle prizes, and a silent auction. Businesses and individuals from the community came together to raise money for this nonprofit that benefits children in surrounding communities by ensuring they have adequate food over the weekends during the school year.
Annually, SFL Companies hosts a fundraiser for Blessings in a Backpack Avondale. This is the first year that the fundraiser has surpassed $10,000 in profits. Besides the annual fundraiser event, SFL Companies also supports Blessings in a Backpack Avondale through weekly food drop offs to the Avondale schools and through packing food bags occasionally at Meadowbrook Learning Center during the workday.
The Avondale Program will be celebrating 15 years at the end of this year. Nearly 175,000 food bags or 1.1 million meals have been provided for Avondale students in this time, with two out of three of these students being in elementary school. With 30% of students in the district at risk of food insecurity, this is incredibly helpful with the physical and mental nourishment of these growing children.
