Women's Center Annual Spaghetti Dinner To Be Held Oct. 13

The Women's Resource and Action Center's (WRAC) annual spaghetti dinner will be held from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at the Zion Lutheran Church, 310 N. Johnson St., corner of Johnson and Bloomington streets in Iowa City.

The presenting sponsor for this year's fund-raising dinner is Zio Johno's Spaghetti House, which has catered the event each year since its inception.  "Zio Johno's financial sponsorship is a big boost toward our $5,000 fundraising goal, which is vital in supporting our work," said WRAC Director Monique DiCarlo.  "The dinner helps fund the Center's important services such as support groups, counseling, activist training programs, information and referral and educational workshops," explained DiCarlo.

"We appreciate the community support and hope everyone realizes the great financial and emotional boost it gives us when they attend the event," said Niru Narayan, UI student and WRAC advisory board member. 

The dinner menu includes spaghetti with vegetarian sauce, bread, salad and dessert. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Included with a dinner ticket is a chance to enter into the event's famous door prize drawing supported by donations from over 20 local businesses. Returning this year are silent auction packages Hawkeye Heaven, Love Boat, Food for Thought, Indulge Yourself, and Your Inner Artist. Tickets are available for advance purchase at the Women's Center, 130 N. Madison St.; tickets will also be available at the door.
