Another nor'easter is taking over the northeast, messing up schedules and travel for a lot of people. The Philadelphia 76ers were forced to postpone a season ticket holder VIP dinner due to the storm on Tuesday night, leaving them with $20,000 in food to deal with and no event to host. The organization did the best thing they could have possibly thought of, donating the food to Camden's cathedral kitchen. The event was originally supposed to take place at their practice facility in Camden.
Sixers were hosting a VIP dinner for season ticket holders tonight, but the event is postponed because of the storm. $20k of food was instead donated to Camden's cathedral kitchen, which will divide it up among food pantries, senior centers, churches, and soup kitchens— Kevin Kinkead (@Kevin_Kinkead) March 20, 2018
Over its 40-year history, the CK program has developed from a simple one of offering soup and sandwiches to a few hungry people, to a highly-organized emergency meal program that has served over one million meals to the poor and hungry.
