The 14th annual Spaghetti Supper and Talent Show fundraiser hosted by youth of the First Congregational Church of Westfield will be held Saturday, March 7th, in the church’s auditorium at 125 Elmer Street. All proceeds will go to sponsoring this year’s mission trip involving the church’s youth.
The evening begins at 6pm with a full dinner of salad, spaghetti, bread, drinks and dessert. Following at 7:30pm will be a Talent Show showcasing adult and youth talent. Hosted by emcee Rev. Joy Mounts, the acts include singing, comedy, instrumentalists, and a performance by FCC’s own cabaret pianist, Joe Regan.
The evening’s proceeds will help send members of the church’s middle and senior high fellowship to West Virginia to serve with the Appalachian Southern Folklore Center. FCC youth will assist with home rehabilitation for people in need, provide needed hands in community development work such as stream clean-up, and help other non-profits in the community. The youth will learn about Appalachian culture while performing much needed volunteer work for folks in the area facing hard times.
Past proceeds of this fork twirling, fun event have helped fund service-learning experiences to Miami, Denver, North Carolina, Washington DC, and Chicago, among other areas of the country.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 6 to 12, and $5 for children ages 4 and 5 and may be purchased at the door. For further information, please contact the church office at 908-233-2494 or visit www.fccofwestfield.org.
