Food for the Poor gala canceled

A gala fund-raiser for Food for the Poor to be held at the Waterford at Fair Oaks April 25 has been canceled.

Organizers announced in last week's Catholic Herald that NBC journalists Ann Curry and Chris Matthews had been named honorary co-chairs of the first ever event in Virginia. Proceeds were to benefit Food for the Poor's work building homes in hurricane-ravaged areas of Haiti.
