Warm up the fall with a roast
Submitted By Sara Lamnin
South Hayward Parish invites you to a Roast of Betty DeForest on Thursday, October 11, 2012 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Westminster Hills Outreach Center, Hayward. Enjoy an evening of good people, good food and good humor. Brief speakers include Hayward City Councilmember Mark Salinas, Hayward Library Commissioner Kari McAllister and Hayward Day Labor Center Director Gabriel Hernandez. The Master of Ceremonies is retired Hayward School Board President, Paul Frumkin III.
Betty DeForest never met a problem... for whom she could not knit a sweater or make a meal... and, therefore, overcome.
Serving Hayward as a member of the Hayward School Board and CEO of the Eden Youth and Family Center, she has developed counseling, childcare and family support programs. She brought together coalitions to make sure there is No Room for Racism but plenty of opportunity for dessert. Come learn more on October 11, 2012.
Proceeds from the event, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, support programs of South Hayward Parish: The Food Pantry, Family Resource Collective and Hayward Community Action Network.
In the last fiscal year, the Food Pantry served 250,000 meals to individuals and families. The Family Resource Collective brings together community partners to provide information, services and healthcare to those in need. Hayward C.A.N. partners with individuals who are homeless, faith communities, businesses, and social services to develop sustainable solutions to end homelessness in Hayward.
