Palm Beach County’s largest Thanksgiving pie sale benefiting Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches is back for its ninth year, and this year, “Pie It Forward” will once again make it easy for supporters to help homebound seniors.
Presented by Bank of America, “Pie It Forward” offers apple, pecan, pumpkin and key lime pies prepared by chefs from country clubs, restaurants and resorts throughout the region.
Pies are being sold online between Nov. 1 and Nov. 15 and will be available for pickup at three locations — the Palm Beach County Convention Center, Duffy’s Sports Grill in East Jupiter and Duffy’s Sports Grill in Delray Beach — on Nov. 21, which is two days before Thanksgiving.
Pies are available for a donation of $30 each, and $35 each for specialty key lime pies. Virtual pies, a $30 donation, are also available, and supporters can once again “Gift-A-Pie” to someone special, allowing the lucky recipient to order their choice of pie and pickup location.
“This year, ‘Pie Masters’ from our community are donating more than 3,000 pies,” Meals on Wheels Special Events Director Maura Sartory said. “Every pie purchased helps cover the cost of a week of nutritious meals delivered to a homebound senior in Palm Beach County.”
“Pie Masters” this year will be coming from Addison Reserve, Admirals Cove, the Beach Club, Boca Grove, Charlie & Joe’s at Love Street, the Club at Ibis, Delray Dunes, Duffy’s Sports Grill, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, Kitchen, Hilton West Palm Beach, Lost Tree Club, Mirasol, the Paddock Restaurant, the Palm Beach County Convention Center, the Polo Club, PGA National, the Sailfish Club of Florida, Sandy James Fine Foods & Catering, Serenity Tea House and the Wycliffe Golf & Country Club.
Those buying pies will once again have a chance to “Buy a Slice for a Senior.” An extra $5 added to a donation or an extra $30 for a pie, will go to the Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches Dessert Fund.
Supporters can also purchase the “Baker’s Bundle,” which provides three delicious pies and a reusable tote bag for a $100 donation.
Sponsors of this year’s fundraiser, in addition to Bank of America, are Jack Scalisi Wholesale Produce, Carrier, Duffy’s Sports Grill, Cheney Brothers International, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the Palm Beach County Convention Center, Scott Velozo Graphic Design, Sysco, the Berg Family, Cox Ideabar and Dailey Janssen Architects.
“Bank of America has been a partner with the ‘Pie It Forward’ campaign since it began in 2015,” said Fab Brumley, Palm Beach County president for Bank of America. “It’s such a unique and community-driven way to not only celebrate the holiday season with delicious pies, but to support the vital programs Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches offers right here in our community.”
“We are grateful to all of our other sponsors, businesses and individuals in our community who come back every year to buy a pie and help us care for our wonderful homebound seniors,” Meals on Wheels President & CEO Pamela Calzadilla said. “We feel so fortunate to be in such a caring and supportive community.”
