Women's Center hosts fund-raising dinner Oct. 11

The Women's Resource and Action Center will host its annual spaghetti dinner Friday, Oct. 11 from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church in Iowa City, 310 North Johnson Street.

The presenting sponsor for this year's fundraiser is Zio Johno's Spaghetti House, which has catered the event each year since its inception in 1996. "Zio Johno's financial sponsorship is a big boost toward our $3,000 fundraising goal which is more important than ever this year as the university faces continuing funding cuts," says center director, Monique DiCarlo. The dinner helps fund the center's important services like support groups, counseling, information and referral and educational seminars.

"This event is so much fun," said Cassidy Titcomb, advisory board chairperson. "We appreciate the community support and hope everyone realizes the great financial and emotional boost it gives us when they attend the event," she stated.

The dinner menu includes spaghetti with vegetarian sauce, bread, salad and dessert. Tickets are $10 for adults and $4 for children. Included with a dinner ticket is a chance to enter into the event's famous door prize drawing supported by donations from more than 20 local businesses. Tickets are available for advance purchase at the Women's Center at 130 N. Madison Street. Tickets will also be available at the door.
