 4th Annual Spaghetti Feed - Thursday March 13, 2014. What it's all about...

 

I am reminded every year at this time how incredibly lucky I have been throughout most of my life. And in spite of what they thought when they were teens, our kids have been incredibly lucky as well!  

We are hosting our 4th Annual Spaghetti Feed on March 13, 2014.  

That fact in and of itself isn’t really what makes me so sentimental.  The reason for it does.  

This event has been the single biggest fund raising event for the Angel Fund-a fund administered by the La Grande School District to feed and help homeless and disadvantaged youth in Union County.  

This fund provides food for the “Friday Backpack Program”, a program that sends food home with kids on weekends so they have basic nourishment when they’re not in school.  

For most of us, that is something that wouldn’t even have to cross our minds. Feeding our kids on the weekends is such a “given” for most of us…… Unfortunately, not for these kids- many more of them than most of us would have thought possible.  

Kids should not have to worry about what-or when-they will eat when they don’t have school.  They are supposed to worry about whether their bike tires are pumped up, whether they can go hang out with their friends, whether it will rain and mess up little league practice-just about everything except whether they will eat or not.  

Everyone in our office is deeply involved in this project donating money, time, food and effort in order to help this worthwhile program.  

Likewise, our clients, customers and friends have offered amazing support bringing in food donations, offering to work and purchasing tickets to the event.  

A special “Thank You” goes out to Broken Horn Ranch in Cove. They donated all the meat for this year’s event. If you see Kyle or Tammy Robinson, be sure to thank them. They are wonderful people and have been big supporters of this event since its inception.  

This is kind of a big deal for us and for the kids that benefit from it.

Come join us March 13 from 5pm to 7pm @ The La Grande Masonic Lodge Ballroom - 1313 1/2 Adams Ave (Downtown).

Tickets can be purchased at our office or at the door: Adults $6 & Kids $4.
