In case you were wondering, the San Antonio Food Bank’s warehouse is large, I mean really large. After all, the food bank serves food to families and children in 16 different counties here in South Texas. Fashion found its way to the warehouse on Thursday night for “Runway, Where Fashion Meets Compassion.” The proceeds from the event, which featured local designer Julian Gold, went to the San Antonio Food Bank.

Eric Cooper, president and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank, praised those who attended the fashion show on Thursday night.

“As we look around us we’re surrounded by just incredible ladies that are having a good time enjoying food, friendship, fashion, and having fun, but they’re all doing it for a good cause and making a difference at the Food Bank, he said.

“It’s a great way for us to connect with our supporters and raise a lot of money to nourish our community. The month of November is probably the most celebrated food month of the year and for us to get the support to make sure no child or senior or family goes hungry is what it’s all about.”

The San Antonio Food Bank is in desperate need for turkeys for the upcoming holiday seasons. Those interested can put a turkey on the table by donating on the Food Bank’s website or physically donating a frozen turkey of your choice at the Food Bank during operating hours. For runners, the San Antonio Food Bank will also be hosting The Great Turkey Challenge 5K Thanksgiving morning that will also help reach families in need for that holiday bird.
