On June 24th, Bread & Broth’s Monday Meal fed 96 community members who arrived at St. Theresa’s Grace Hall between 4:00 and 5:30 p.m., and were served beef stroganoff, sautéed zucchini, a green salad, fresh apricots and a lovely assortment of desserts.  Sponsoring the meal for the evening was Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, whose $300 donation helped cover the costs of the meal, and who provided five Hard Rock team members to participate in their Adopt A Day of Nourishment sponsorship.

Leading the Hard Rock sponsorship team was Joelle Shearin, Hard Rock Hotel’s General Manager, who was experiencing her first time helping at a B&B Monday Meal.  “Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe was honored to serve alongside Bread & Broth’s many volunteers,” shared Joelle.  “Bread & Broth demonstrates our motto ‘Love all, serve all’ in South Lake Tahoe.”   Hard Rock’s sponsor crew team also included Scott Kornfield, Marth McElligott, Ashleigh Speaker and Rhonda Turner, all member’s of Hard Rock’s management staff.

The Hard Rock team was a fun group who shared the joy and kindness encouraged by their motto and their dedication to serving others.  In addition to their support of B&B’s Monday Meal dinners, Hard Rock will also be donating coleslaw to B&B’s Burlap & Denim country-western BBQ fundraiser at the historic Celio Ranch on Saturday, August 24th.   The fundraiser will raise monies to support the B&B 4 Kids program.

B&B is very fortunate and grateful to have Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s support and backing for both our Monday Meal program and the Kid’s program which feeds food insecure children in our community.
