All proceeds will benefit People Helping People. The nonprofit charity organization operates Burlington Community Food Pantry, which provides free food items once a month to income-eligible Burlington families from its location at 10 St. Mark’s Road. In 2013, the pantry distributed about 110,000 pounds of food. It also has programs that provide free Thanksgiving meals and holiday gifts for children at a Wish Tree in Burlington Mall. In 2013, some 180 families received Thanksgiving meals and 1,000 gifts were distributed to close to 200children. Tickets to the March 9 event are $40.
