On April 29, 2013, Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland held its 22nd Annual Culinary Extravaganza fundraiser, celebrating the joys of good food and good company — just what Meals on Wheels brings to over 3,000 homebound, frail, and elderly people in the Baltimore-Washington area every day, five days a week, rain or shine.
Over 425 people attended this year’s circus-themed event, Cirque de la Cuisine. They were greeted at the door by stilt walkers, fire jugglers and a candid photo booth with circus props, and treated to spectacular hors d’oeuvres and desserts from a Who’s Who of Baltimore’s greatest chefs.
The event raised more than $150,000, thanks to generous donors like Vasant Nayak, who contributed not one but two of his photographs, beautifully framed, for the event’s silent auction. Mr. Nayak is a photographer and digital artist who has exhibited his work in the United States and internationally, in individual and group shows. He has travelled the world to capture photographs of matchless beauty, suffused with an artistry that is at once cosmopolitan, spiritual, and deeply humanitarian.
The MurthyNAYAK Foundation is delighted to support the work of Meals on Wheels, especially at a time when federal funding is on the wane, due to sequestration. We support this cause because we know every life matters!
