Phi Lambda Psi to host annual spaghetti dinner

The Phi Lambda Psi sorority will host its ninth annual spaghetti dinner on Monday, March 27.

The sisters will serve food donated by DelGrosso Foods and conduct a basket raffle from 4-7 p.m. in JFK Lounge.

Tickets are $5.

All proceeds benefit Dreams Go On, a horseback-riding camp in Hollidaysburg that allows children with special needs to receive therapy while building motor and emotional skills.

“Autism awareness is something near and dear to all of our hearts,” said philanthropy chair Bethany Miller.

“We try to raise as much money as we can for Dreams Go On throughout the year because it benefits autistic children by allowing them to receive therapy.”

In 2016, the dinner raised more than $1,600. The Lammies are aiming to raise at least $1,250 this year.

“It means so much to me to be able to raise money for Dreams Go On,” said Bri Paules, a first-year member of Phi Lambda Psi. “Not only are we raising money for Dreams Go On, but we’re also bringing awareness to autism.”

Miller is anticipating about 150 guests and is hoping the sorority’s advertisements of all-you-can-eat spaghetti draws in more people than previous years.

Additional basket raffle tickets will be sold for $1 for two tickets or $5 for an arm’s length.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how every aspect of the planning comes together and raising money for our philanthropy,” said Paules.
