The Roosevelt Intermediate School cafeteria was transformed into an Italian Cafe on May 18 to host the annual Spaghetti Dinner Committee.
Girls Learn International sponsored the event and $1,400 was collected and donated to the Veerni Institute, benefiting girls in India seeking secondary education and services. The night was a huge success! There were over 250 participants, guests and volunteers.
The room displayed Italian decor, donated by the PTO! It looked like an Italian cafe with floating lanterns, basil pot centerpieces, and Italian faire and a placemat from a student artist.
Two student jazz bands orchestrated flawless entertainment, and adults and children enjoyed the evening. The food was, of course, a highlight. There food selection included marinara sauce, bolognese, meatballs, salad, bread and pasta from generous donors which included: Outta Hand Pizza, Hershey’s Deli, Fettle & Fare, Casa De Pizza, Ambeli Greek Taverna, Al’s Deli, and Gennero’s Italian Restaurant.
People enjoyed their meals and desserts donated by the student body and PTO. The night a success and Mrs. Asfendis, Mr. Gechtman, and the Spaghetti Dinner Team would like to thank all sponsors, attendees, volunteers and donors! Thank You!
