It was a smoking hot night at our 3rd annual Cigars Under The Stars event! Party-goers raised enough funds to provide 15,302 meals to homebound seniors.
Guests headed south to Savannah as Blend Bar in The Woodlands was transformed with a lush southern theme – including signature Savannah drinks, delicious food, and music by Sheri Lavo. Our very own Chef John even mingled with samples of his specialty appetizers!
Fundraisers like this are one of the many ways Meals on Wheels Montgomery County funds the growing need of local seniors. With seniors as the fastest growing population in our county, the need for services continues to increase. We are so grateful for the generosity of the sponsors and guests who invest in our frailest neighbors.
After taking the Meals on Wheels Kitchen Tour and seeing the big things being accomplished by Meals on Wheels with such a small and humble staff, it was truly awe inspiring. Simply put, it’s shocking to learn how many seniors in OUR community need a dependable source of food. To be a part of something so worthy in nature is truly an honor and a task we should all care about.

What We Do
The mission of Meals on Wheels Montgomery County is to foster the independence and dignity of homebound seniors by providing them with nutritious meals, transportation services and caring connections. MOWMC delivers nutritious lunch meals to homebound seniors Monday through Friday with the help of more than 200 volunteers. The Senior Rides Bus program provides free curbside transportation to homebound seniors and the disabled; reducing the isolation associated with the inability to drive. MOWMC helps aging neighbors in our community remain well nourished, connected to the community, and independent within the comfort of their own home.
