Feeding Matters is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families who care for children with pediatric feeding disorder. Every year, Feeding Matters hosts a community fundraising luncheon to raise awareness and help improve the system of care for pediatric feeding disorder through advocacy, education, support, and research.
Feeding Matters’ Annual Community Event raises much-needed funds to accelerate identification, ignite research, and promote collaborative care for children with pediatric feeding disorder. This event unites families, clinicians, donors, and supporters for a captivating afternoon celebrating advances in PFD.
Every year, we have the great privilege of working with Feeding Matters to photograph their annual fundraising event at the Arizona Biltmore resort. However this year in response to COVID-19, and for the first time ever, Feeding Matters 8th Annual Community Event was entirely virtual! We always love working with Feeding Matters and were honored to produce their virtual event and livestream it from Phoenix, AZ for viewers to watch safely from their homes around the world, some as far as South Africa, Italy, and Brazil!
That is one of our favorite elements of a virtual event, the ability to reach a broader audience even on the other side of the world and bring everyone together to celebrate and support such a special cause. Participating in the live audience chat and seeing messages of encouragement pour in from around the world shows what a strong sense of community we can build through online platforms and virtual communication. A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended the live-streamed event, participated in the audience chat, and made a generous donation — thank you for helping us honor and support the children and families who are affected by pediatric feeding disorder.
This year’s event was presented by Jaburg Wilk Attorneys at Law and the Armstrong Family Foundation. The annual fundraiser is underwritten by local sponsors, including the Arizona Community Foundation, Lerner & Rowe Gives Back, Mercy Care, Miracle Mile Deli, and Shamrock Farms. That means every donation raised from this event goes directly to supporting Feeding Matters’ work to improve the care for children with pediatric feeding disorder.
