Dinner Fundraiser to Support Feed My Starving Children

Dinner Fundraiser to Support Feed My Starving Children

A local effort to pack hundreds of thousands of meals for malnourished children around the world is holding its annual major fundraiser to help pay for the meals that will be packed.

The special dinner, to be held Sept. 12 with catering donated by Randy Peters Catering and Event Planning, will benefit the 5th Annual Feed My Starving Children MobilePack.

All of the proceeds of the fundraiser will help pay for the meals to be packed during the non-profit Feed My Starving Children MobilePack event, scheduled for Oct. 23 to 25 at William Jessup University. In the first four years, the MobilePacks have packed more than 1.8 million meals.

Randy and Lisa Peters, owners of Randy Peters Catering & Event Planning, are donating all the food and their service for the event – meaning every dollar raised will go toward paying for meals for the MobilePack.

Foul play not suspected in Truckee man death


TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - The skeletal remains discovered near Donner Lake in July have been identified as a 60-year-old Truckee man who'd been missing since March.

Colin's family had reported him missing on March 28 when he last was seen at a drug store in Truckee. His car was parked in his driveway and an exhaustive search failed to develop any leads.

The hikers came across the remains July 12 in a steep, heavily wooded area west of Donner Lake Road.

The Nevada County Sheriff's coroner says an anthropology lab in Chico confirmed the identity Tuesday. At the time he disappeared, police say Colin discussed wanting to contact the federal government, but gave no reason.

Police say it's highly unlikely any foul play was involved, but the exact cause of death remains under investigation.
