Party Girls, a caterer and party event company, based in Annapolis, MD, catered a special Valentine’s Dinner party for the residents of the Light House Shelter on Hudson Street in Annapolis.

Party Girls, Julie St Marie and Christina Eichenmuller, created a memorable evening, filled with Valentine decorations, dinner and an ice cream sundae bar for the residents.

When asked why they decided to provide the Valentine’s dinner, Ms. St Marie said, “we wanted to celebrate a special occasion, give the residents something to look forward to. We did a Super Bowl party for the residents and look forward to doing something again soon. We’re all about creating moments that matter and it’s a way for us to give back.”

The menu included appetizers consisting of spinach dip and sausage queso. The main course included roast beef, green beans, a garden salad and a baked potato bar with all the toppings.  To finish off the meal, the residents created their own ice cream sundaes. As a special treat, the Party Girls made Valentine Bags full of candy for the kids living in the shelter.

Enough food was prepared to also feed thirty people staying in the winter relief area of the shelter as well.

Donna Manzi, Rick Danforth and Sophia Thomas were also volunteered to serve the meal.

The Light House shelter serves as a beacon of hope to Anne Arundel County’s most fragile neighbors. For over two decades, the Light House shelter has been steadfast in their mission of rebuilding lives with service and compassion by providing shelter, preventing homelessness and empowering people in Anne Arundel County as they work to become self-sufficient.
