Paris Foods Supports Education Foundation Fundraiser


Paris Foods has stepped up as a lead sponsor for “Mission Possible – Celebrating TCPS Alumni and Supporting Teachers,” the Talbot County Public Schools Education Foundation’s upcoming fundraising event.

Located on Ocean Gateway in Trappe, Paris Foods Corporation supplies frozen fruits and vegetables to the Foodservice and Industrial markets. Operating from three facilities on the Eastern Seaboard, Paris packages product and distributes in full or partial shipments to the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Midwest. Paris strives to be the most responsive and responsible supplier to its customers.

“Mission Possible” will be held on Friday November 16 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the Milestone Event Center.  The purpose of the event is to recognize distinguished alumni, celebrate Talbot County Public Education, and raise funds, awareness, and support for the Education Foundation.

From L-R: Laura Heikes (TCPSEF). Lisa Woolford, Wendy Pitts, Jen Haller, Bridgette Babich-Dadds, Rosalind Wilson, Amie Taylor, President of Paris Foods, Sharon Turner, Miles Butz, Ward Cain, Pam Clay (TCPSEF), Becky Firth (TCPSEF), and Emilee Kingsley.

“We are so grateful to Paris Foods for their very generous support of this event and the Education Foundation’s mission overall,” said Becky Firth, event co-chair and Education Foundation Advisory Board member. “In keeping with their business model of being responsive and responsible to their customers, Paris Foods has been consistently responsive to the needs of our community by supporting Talbot County Public Schools,” Firth added.  “We are looking forward to having the community come together to enjoy a fun evening while supporting our teachers and students.  This will be a terrific opportunity to see first-hand examples of the incredible instructional initiatives that we are striving to fund.”

The evening will include a cocktail reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres, a reverse auction benefitting the foundation’s Grants for Teachers program and some terrific door prizes donated by local businesses.
