The seventh annual Making a World of Difference event will be Oct. 10 at 6 p.m. at Tempe Center for the Arts, and will recognize Ahwatukee resident Janine Skinner and others.

Skinner is the local development advisor for Feed My Starving Children, a local nonprofit organization that serves more than 70 countries. Local volunteers pack the MannaPack Rice meals, which are nutrient-filled, cost $1.32 to produce, include six meals, and can quickly reverse and prevent malnutrition. Together with her volunteers, Skinner led the recent Change the World from Phoenix with the goal of packing one million meals in 24 hours. Her fundraising goal is to raise $1 million to open a larger site that will produce 25 million meals each year (feeding some 70,000 daily) with the help of some 115,000 local volunteers.

Reservations are $75 and may be made by calling (480) 350-8181, or online at tempesistercities.org.
