Home for Good Dog to Host Seventh Annual 'Taste of Italy' Spaghetti Dinner and Tricky Tray, March 5

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – Tickets are still available for Home for Good Dog Rescue’s annual “Taste of Italy” Spaghetti Dinner and Tricky Tray, to be held March 5 at the Long Hill Community Center, 254 S. Warren Ave. in Stirling, NJ.
The event is one of several large-scale fundraisers the Summit-based non-profit organization hosts each year and serves as a major source of support for its rescue mission.
“As this event enters its seventh year, we are thrilled to welcome both our supporters and the community at large to what is certain to be a fun-filled night,” Abbe Fried, Home for Good Dog Rescue’s Donation Manager, said.
In addition to a spaghetti dinner sponsored by Mama Mancini’s Slow Cooked Italian Sauce Meatballs, the evening boasts hundreds of baskets and prizes for raffle, a beer, wine, and sangria bar, and a super 50/50 raffle. In previous years, winners have taken home luxury electronics, a television, an iPad, and cash prizes totaling more than $2,000.
“Every dollar we raise goes right back to helping us rescue another dog, so you get to have a great time all while saving the life of an animal in need. You really can’t lose!” Fried continued.
Home for Good Dog Rescue is dedicated to rescuing dogs from high-kill shelters throughout the southern United States, transporting them north to New Jersey, and then placing them in their network of loving local foster homes until adoption. Since the organization’s inception in 2010, it has saved the lives of more than 4,000 dogs.
Tickets for the annual “Taste of Italy” Spaghetti Dinner & Tricky Tray are still available in limited quantities for a donation of $40 per adult or $15 for children under the age of 12.  Tickets for the 50/50 raffle are $5 each or $50 for a book of ten. In order to reserve a place, please call Home for Good Dog Rescue at (908) 263-7358 or email donate@hfgdr.orgfor more information. Doors open at 6:30 PM.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
