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,"
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.
