The next 3 Cans & a Good Time Food Drive is set for Wednesday, 9/20/23 at 5pm. It will be held again at the Overland Park ACA club, 6840 W 105th St. and as always your donation of food covers your food and adult beverages and entertainment. Martin Taggart, Team Real Estate, is the brain child behind this amazingly fun event as a way for local businesses to demonstrate their willingness to take care of the community. It has been wildly successful at raising food to stock the shelves here, and every 8 weeks they have committed to throwing another event bigger than the last.
"3 Cans & a Good Time" is just that! Caylon Umphrey, NHFP Executive Director, says "it's the most fun event I attend!" Though the ACA is a private club, they open this event to the public as a way to come alongside the community for a good cause, but having fun while doing it. "Every time they throw another 3 Cans, I invite tons of people simply to come to the party with a cause!"
Be our guest and let us know if you win a prize! About 10 $25 gift cards often are given out to prize winners selected from attendees. Food is provided by Chris Cakes, so come hungry & ready for flippin' flap jacks!
WOW! We have some exciting things going on around New Hope Food Pantry! We have teamed up with the Valley of the Northeast Scottish Rite to try to raise money so both organizations can help children and families in need of food and medical care. The fundraiser will have a car & motorcycle show with prizes and swag bags for the first 50 people to pre-register their vehicles. There will be breakfast & lunch served through a snack bar & live music by the Teresa Deaton Band sponsored by Team Real Estate of Overland Park, KS. Games with prizes for kids will be available to play and win, as well as a kids raffle table to win prizes just for them!
After the car & motorcycle show, come inside for a casino style party with mice races, roulette & a Texas Hold Em tournament! The tournament will have a $200 valued first prize, $100 value for second place and a $50 prize for 3rd place. We will of course have food and adult beverages, as well as a silent auction & vendor booths. Pass the word to everyone to encourage attendance as the more people who come, the more money our organizations will make!
We've always said it takes a village, and we have been really fortunate that many local businesses have given their time, money and attention to helping us reach our goal! Already Max Motors has signed on as the event sponsor, Rawhide Harley Davidson of Olathe, KS signed on as a Gold Sponsor & Independent Amsoil Dealer, Tom Gorby & Shore Tire of Overland Park have signed on as Nickel Sponsors! Please support their businesses since they care enough to help support the community!
