2018 Spaghetti Dinner a Success!

Thank you for all your help and support for the Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser – according to the final count, this event netted $1848.65. We had a lot of fun in the effort.

The move of this event to Saturday night was a key in the success for this year. It is estimated that we spent about 160 man-hours of efforts.  In addition to the income, we provided a large amount of food to three different organizations and a significant amount of bread to the religious education students who were studying the Eucharist. We were fortunate enough to share our table with St Edward’s Spanish community after the 6:30 Mass let out.  We had a great time as they brought in some enchiladas and a birthday cake for a youngster.

A special thanks, goes out to Debby Galluppi who was very instrumental in getting a large amount of donations from local businesses – that effort directly increased the profit for this event. Another special thanks goes to the Youth ministry support lead by John Leirey. There efforts were extremely beneficial.
