Feed my Neighbor is a program of the Cathedral of the Assumption
On SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 2017, the Cathedral of the Assumption is hosting a very special event to help raise awareness and support for Louisville’s hungry and homeless.
This charity event is called - LET’S DANCE LOUISVILLE and is based on the hit TV show, DANCING WITH THE STARS, but on a local level. Twelve local “celebrities” will compete in a dance competition for your votes and support.
In addition to dancing, there will be live and silent auctions.
Online Voting Begins March 25
Many thanks for your presence in support of Let’s Dance Louisville and the Feed My Neighbor lunch program at Sandefur Dining Room. The mission of daily feeding the hungry at the Cathedral of the Assumption was born of necessity and charity in the 1930’s when the city of Louisville reeled from the effects of the Great Depression and the local devastation of the Great Flood of 1937. Since then the necessity of feeding the hungry has continued. Thanks be to God, so has the charity. This past year 4,563 men, women and children volunteered to continue this labor of love in serving approximately 40,000 meals.
At last year’s event, I was only three days into my tenure at the Cathedral. Now a year later, I am happy to return with deeper understanding and appreciation for this noble undertaking and the faces, names and lives supporting it behind the scenes. Here the many who serve and who are served come together as one in a way that reveals what is best in us all. May God bless the kindness of those who make it possible!

Thank you for your interest in the fourth annual Let’s Dance Louisville (LDL) dance competition that provides funding to provide 40,000 meals to hungry and homeless men, women, and children of our compassionate city. I am very excited to be working with a group of twelve amazing Kentuckiana celebrities who will strut and shimmy their way across the room to create dance floor magic. Our dancing cast will devote many hours of challenging rehearsals to ensure the greatest level of entertainment for your enjoyment.
The Let’s Dance Louisville charity event is just one of the many ways the Sandefur Dining Room is working to create support and awareness for our hungry homeless guests that are fed each year. You can help us by making reservations to attend this event and by casting your votes for your favorite dancing “celebrity”. This night is a party with a purpose. See you on the dance floor!
