Spaghetti dinner in support of medical fund

The Golden Rotary Club is hosting a Giant Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser Friday Feb. 6 from 5-9 p.m.

The Golden Rotary Club is hosting a Giant Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser Friday Feb. 6 from 5-9 p.m.

This event will raise funds for the Rotary Medical Emergency Fund and Golden Food Bank. Admission will be by donation.

Serving the food will be Rotary Club members and Golden Dental Centre staff, while two bands: the Masters of Nun and the Parson Jazz Cooperative provide live music.

Our goal is to raise significant funds for both organizations to get through the winter and also to have a very fun night of eating, music and dancing.

The Rotary Emergency Medical Fund is set up to offer families and individuals who are dealing with not only medical conditions requiring treatment, but also the expense of travel, and other out of pocket costs associated with the treatment. We hope to bolster the fund to bring it up well over $8,000 this year.

The Golden Food Bank has continuous client use, and wishes to have more funding for basic foods.

Having a fun filled event that can improve the status of both key organizations and take some of the pressure off their fundraising is a win-win for everyone. We hope everyone can come to enjoy this event. The outcome of helping young families cope with children with serious medical conditions and numerous trips to the city is incredibly valuable to our community, as is helping provide food for folks in transition, or distress.
