Shanahan McDougal Supports Wake County Meals on Wheels as King Sponsor of 2019 Mardi Gras Ball

Shanahan McDougal has signed on as a King Sponsor of the 2019 Mardi Gras Ball, which benefits Meals on Wheels of Wake County. The event, which is set for Mar. 1 at the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley, features dinner, live music by The Embers, silent and live auctions, a Krewe Parade and more.

“Meals on Wheels provides an invaluable service to Wake County by enabling older adults to maintain their dignity and independence and remain in their homes,” said Kieran J. Shanahan, founder of Shanahan McDougal. “Our firm is committed to making our community a better
place, and we are proud to support this worthy cause.”

Meals on Wheels of Wake County serves 1,300 noontime meals to homebound older adults and persons with disabilities every weekday. The group’s outreach consists of hot meals to homebound individuals, communal dining for adults 60+ in congregate dining rooms and frozen
meal service for dialysis patients and other homebound individuals in isolated areas. Over 2,200 volunteers help deliver meals Monday through Friday each week. Meals on Wheels of Wake County was founded on February 12, 1974 with ten volunteers meeting at Hillyer Christian
Church to deliver meals in downtown Raleigh. Since then over 9 million meals have been served in Wake County alone. Meals on Wheels of Wake County is associated with the Meals on Wheels America, which is comprised of over 5,000 Senior Nutrition Programs and 800,000 volunteers in the U.S. dedicated to ending senior hunger.
