Empty Plate Dinner 2014 has come and gone, but we still remember it as a great event celebrating the strength of community. Save the date for next year’s Empty Plate Dinner, scheduled for Saturday April 18, 2015. In the mean time, click here to watch this video of the event created by student volunteer Taylor Ruso. And below are some pictures form the event as well. We thank you for your support of our inaugural Empty Plate Dinner and look forward to seeing you next year!
We thank our community of supporters and sponsors who helped make Jazz it Up ’14 such a success. We also thank the musicians who donated their time and talent to present a spectacular jazz festival. We congratulate Jazz it Up! Producer Justin Fink on a second spectacular day of live jazz music. As you look back at these pictures from the event, we hope you remember what a good time you had while furthering NPIHN’s mission to find lasting solutions to family homelessness. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
