We need your support help us out please *Pasta Dinner Fundraiser important

Ciao! A "Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser" is a time honored tradition as a way to raise funds for charitable causes. Please join us for a delicious pasta dinner where the proceeds will be utilized to support local military families.

One event that we are really excited about supporting is the Boots & Booties Military Baby Shower which will be held on October 19th at The Venetian Hotel. This unique shower will provide 150 expectant military mothers in need with basic baby necessities.

Many of these expectant mothers are here in Las Vegas without family nearby to assist them and/or give them showers. Quite often their husbands are deployed overseas and they are completely alone. What better way to honor the heroes fighting for our country then to help their unborn children?

To raise money to help with the baby shower and other military families, we are hosting an All You Can Eat Pasta Dinner for $10 per person. This will include antipasto, pasta, (one meat sauce, one marinara sauce) salad, garlic bread, dessert. Ice Tea and water will be provided, please feel free to bring your own wine or other beverages.Dinner prepared by Chef Vernalisa using my secert familys tomato sauce recipe over 100 years old  .Fantastic

We will also be cross posting this event with Ladies Making A difference formally 40 PLUS just us girls. 

Since this is a fundraiser, we are requesting pre-payment so that we are able to purchase supplies ahead of time. Please send checks to:

Marcine Anthony

2921 Green Falls Avenue

Henderson, NV  89052

If you can,t come and care to donate $10.00 it would be greatly appreciated .

 But please, RSVP with integrity! We will be purchasing food and supplies based on the number of RSVP's. Obviously, if we get "No Shows" or last minute cancellations, those costs will have to be subtracted from the funds that we hope to raise to support our military families.

Special thanks to our talented friend and member, Bill Rozak, who has graciously agreed to entertain us with his lively music while we dine and socialize.

RAFFLES: We will be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win two gift baskets as well as a few other raffle items. Even if you do not have a  need for one of the gift baskets, they will make lovely, ready to be presented future gifts for when you need one!  Raffle tickets will be $1.00 each. If anyone would like to donate an item(s) for the raffle, please contact Vernalisa, Marcine or Robin.

Please remember that our goal is to raise money for some very deserving families that need our assistance. We hope that you will come prepared to generously purchase raffle tickets and make this event a smashing success!!

Thank you!
