Thank you to the many people who volunteered their time and energy over this past weekend so that we could once again pull off another successful Italian Dinner. It's been a very long and tiring few days and we're all due for a rest, but what a great event it was!  We served thousands of meals in just 6 hours. Because of our volunteers, sponsors, entertainers, chairpersons, "pasta heads", students from Apollo and LCC and everyone who came in and purchased our meals, baked goods and made donations, we will be able to provide more scholarships and more funding for so many deserving local students and charitable causes.  We will be posting lots of photos in the coming days. In the meantime, have a look at some of our media coverage.
