Cream City Magazine is celebrating its second anniversary with a Friday night June 22 cocktail reception at the Platinum Club at Uni-Trade Stadium from 8 p.m. to midnight. Cream editor and publisher Fernando “Ferch” de Haro announced the event, “Cream Dream” A Fight Against Hunger, will raise funds for the South Texas Food Bank mission of feeding the hungry. It is also the first community event at the new Uni-Trade Stadium. Tickets are $50 per couple. Admission includes a sampling of appetizers, beverages and music by the popular DJ “Pop Rocks.” The dress is casual business attire. Tickets are available by calling Cream City Magazine 753-6755 or Lisa Longoria 333-3922.
“We deeply believe in the South Texas Food Bank mission of helping the less fortunate with the most basic of needs, which is food during these difficult economic times,” de Haro said. The South Texas Food Bank distributes food to 25,000 families per month in an eight-county area from Rio Grande City to Del Rio.
“Our sincerest gratitude to Cream Magazine for choosing the South Texas Food Bank as the recipient of partial proceeds to assist our daunting mission,” STFB director of development Cindy Liendo Espinoza said.

They include Adopt-A-Family $7,500, Commodity Supplemental Food Program $5,000, Kids Cafes $3,000 and Emergency Bags $1,500.
