Take a break from hectic schedules to enjoy a perfect family fun night while donating to a worthy cause. The fourth annual SMILE spaghetti dinner runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 1, at St. John’s Church, 8 Wickford Way, Fairport. The fundraiser will benefit the Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
This family-friendly event, which offers a variety of games along with arts and crafts for children, is hosted by Nazareth College’s Communication Sciences and Disorders Association. Ticket cost $6 for adults, $4 for children ages 3 to 9, and $20 for families of five or more. Take-out containers are available for $6 per meal. Local companies such as LiDestri Foods, Barilla Pasta and Monks’ Bread will be donating the food served.
Raffle tickets will be sold for $1 each and the winner will receive a gift basket. Last year, $2,400 was raised with help from the raffle tickets. This fundraiser has drawn in large crowds before with about 275 people in 2010, and this year the organizers expect a good turnout as well. To ensure your spot and a delicious meal, get tickets early.
