PB Kitchen Walk raises (over) $13,000 for Fox Valley Food for Health

GENEVA, Ill. -- (May 22, 2018) -- PB Kitchen Design (PBKD) hosted its Fox Valley Kitchen Walk on May 19, featuring some of the firm’s premier kitchen projects located in Geneva, St. Charles and Batavia. This year’s event raised over $13,000 and will be donated to benefit Fox Valley Food for Health (FVFFH), an organization which instructs teens how to prepare healthy, predominately organic and nutrient-filled meals for seriously ill or cancer patients. Over 200 guests attended the kitchen walk, which culminated with a reception at PBKD’s showroom in downtown Geneva. The funds raised from ticket sales, online donations and a silent auction will allow FVFFH to increase its impact within the Kane County and Fox Valley community. “We are thrilled to continue the tradition of our kitchen walk,” said Dan McFadden, president of PB Kitchen Design. “Being a family-owned business, it’s important to us that we give back to organizations in our community. FVFFH was founded in 2012 by Mary Fremgen and Susan Leigh with the mission to provide meals that nourish the seriously ill, while empowering young adults. Since the program’s inception, more than 200 adults and 150 teens have volunteered approximately 45,000 hours and served 46,000 free meals. “We are thankful for the support of PB Kitchen Design and those who attended the kitchen walk,” said says Leigh, Executive Director at Food for Health. “These funds will allow us to continue to grow and serve more people in need.” Special Thanks to our amazing event photographer William Tomlin Photography for volunteering his time and talents.
