BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – Home for Good Dog Rescue is finalizing details for its popular annual Taste of Italy, a Spaghetti & Meatballs Dinner and Tricky Tray taking place on Saturday, March 7, at the Long Hill Community Center in Stirling, NJ.  At this 11th annual event, everyone will enjoy luxury prizes, notable guests and festive entertainment. This year, the event will again feature emcee Heather O’Rourke of Eyewitness News ABC7NY.

More than 300 attendees will gather for a family friendly Italian-themed dinner, with a menu boasting freshly prepared salad, spaghetti, and world-renowned Mama Mancini meatballs. And if that doesn’t fill you up, there will be an endless variety of homemade delectable desserts! Guests will have the chance of winning a wealth of prize baskets, including but not limited to restaurant gift certificates, home goods, nights out on the town, pet products and high-tech electronics. Home for Good Dog Rescue will also be running their annual mega 50/50 cash raffle. The night is sure to be an evening of great fun, food, and community.

All proceeds from the Taste of Italy event will go helping Home for Good Dog Rescue continue its mission of saving the lives of dogs in peril. Home for Good is a 100% foster based, non-profit charitable organization that rescues homeless dogs from high kill shelters in the South, and  socializes, cares for, and provides them often lifesaving medical care in Aiken, South Carolina.  They are then transported to New Jersey, where they are nurtured in a network of foster families as they await adoption into loving homes, giving them a second chance at life. To date, Home for Good has rescued more than 8,000 dogs.
