Feed My Starving Children (FMSC)

Please join the Phoenix Philanthropists for this very fun and exciting family friendly event at Feed My Starving Children.  With great music playing, in a very energized environment, we will be creating meals, called "Manna Pack Rice," which are distributed throughout the world to restore the health of children in the most severe state of malnutrition.  In just an hour and a half, filled with great fun, you will truly help make a life-saving difference!

    We had a little bit of everything tonight...singing, shakin', even some screaming (from the banshee). But best of all, we had a lot of giving from caring hearts. Thanks everyone!

      Welcome to the Phoenix Philanthropists, Gracie! So happy you'll be joining us tonight for this very fun and rewarding event. Normally, guests should only be added to any event when there is an open spot, but this morning we were able to get a couple more spots from FMSC to accommodate. So we look forward to meeting both you and James for an evening of Hairnet Heroism tonight!
