9/1/12 — Reverend Homer Nye dancing for Food Rescue during SwingShift and the Starts charity event

It is an exciting time for Food Rescue; we are one of six nonprofits being showcased in the 5th anniversary SwingShift and the Stars dance-off for charity event.  Not only is Food Rescue a unique nonprofit but we have a one-of-a-kind dancer representing us; Food Rescue co-founder, Reverend Homer Nye.

“We are honored to be a part of SwingShift and the Stars, it is a wonderful fundraiser that will broaden awareness and spread the word about the outstanding work that Food Rescue accomplishes.  We are honored to be picked to participate in SwingShift and the Stars and look forward to everyone’s involvement,” said Goodwill CEO, Cecil McNally.

Funds raised will ensure that good food does not go to waste while good people go hungry!
SwingShift and the Stars is a dance competition between six different nonprofits. Each nonprofit is represented by a community member, who is then paired up with a professional dancer. The couple will compete in four dance events, beginning in September.  The events are open to the public and we need as many Food Rescue supporters there as possible.  SwingShift is a fundraiser and the people in the audience have the opportunity to vote for Homer and Food Rescue – audience members get one chance to vote, the minimum vote is $5, however everyone is encouraged to donate as much as they would like, $5 is just a starting point!  Come support us at the 5th anniversary SwingShift and the Stars dance-off for charity event! Remember to, “Vote for Homer Nye, He’s the Apple of Our Eye!”.
