This Thursday, local restaurants will be creating meals with a mission at “A Meal to Remember” gala and auction benefitting East Cooper Meals on Wheels. This is their 14th annual event and doors will open to guests at 6:30p.m. at the Wild Dunes Resort. This fundraiser supports the organization’s mission of providing up to three meals a day for those in the service area who are homebound or unable to provide their own meals, regardless of age of income. In 2018, East Cooper Meals on Wheels served more than 700 recipients.Last year’s gala raised nearly $150,000 in support of East Cooper Meals on Wheels which was enough to provide more than 50,000 meals.
