“We are excited to announce our second annual Miles for Meals fundraiser,” said Bonnie Pfrenger, Director of Development for Meals on Wheels Montgomery County. “Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success as it attracted 500 participants and surpassed our original goal by raising $38,000. Since last year’s event sold out early, we’ve increased to 700 spots. We encourage folks to register early and come out for a day of fun and support local homebound seniors. Together we can make a difference in the lives of this fragile population.”
