The Gala was a great success! A big thank you to our community for stepping up and supporting Backpack Buddies. We look forward to next year’s event!

The purpose of this fundraising event is to raise funding for operations and food for our local Pantry. This event will be themed as Casino Night in DeLand! All monies raised will go directly to the Backpack Buddies Organization. We will offer passed Hors d’oeuvres, Cash Bar, Silent and Live Auctions and Live Entertainment! Come have some Fun while raising money for a local cause!

Since inception of Backpack Buddies in September of 2019, we have been rewardingly busy! In 2019, approximately 21 children a week were receiving Kids Pack Meals for the weekends through our program. Currently, we are serving 307 kids weekly in 4 West Volusia Schools and hoping to add another in the Fall of 2022 with your help.
