Dear Friend of the City,
We formally invite you to participate in Ventura’s 4th Annual One City|One Meal Thanksgiving Day Celebration. This year’s event will be held at the Ventura County Fairgrounds and promises to be the most successful gathering to date! Our new space afford us the opportunity to introduce more fully the vision of this gathering:
One seating, One moment, One city, One meal.
We have designed the event around the concept of hosting tables, which is far more than serving food…it’s sharing life. And it’s this idea of sharing life for which this meal was designed. Creating an opportunity to build unity in our diversity, sharing honestly in our humanity and hopefully seeing our neighbors in a new way. And so we celebrate Thanksgiving in a way that honors its legacy while paving the way for a greater tomorrow today.
Areas of participation are vast so please let us know you’re interested and allow us to guide you in. Monetary donations are welcome and sponsorship opportunities remain available but the most valuable contribution you can make is your presence.
How YOU can help:
Create a team to host a table (Hosts will provide all the decorations, provide servers, and table hosts who will lead and engage in conversation between diverse backgrounds).
Create a team to provide part of the meal (these teams will provide the turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and stuffing for 20 people. Pans will be provided.)
