Third annual fundraising event features food and fun for the entire family
EAST MARLBOROUGH — Come hungry and ready to have a great time!
The Unionville-Chadds Ford School District will host the Third Annual Family Pasta Dinner to benefit the United Way of Southern Chester County on Saturday evening.
The dinner takes place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Unionville High School cafeteria. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or for a discount, online.
And for the third year, the Unionville Elementary STARs for Service did their part and made over 1300 meatballs for the event. The children and their parent volunteers, Melissa Scott and Sharon Hower, worked along side District Superintendent John Sanville scooping and rolling tray after tray of meatballs.
Other children from the District’s elementary schools got involved as well. Dozens wrote essays and made posters with the theme, “Think globally, act locally, what does this mean to you?” The posters will all be on display the night of the dinner and several of the essays chosen by District administrators will be read by the children that night.
Student volunteers from Unionville High School’s National Honor Society will also be lending a hand running arcade games, handing out prizes, serving food, and selling cookies. They will be joined by adult volunteers from across the community.
And while dinner is being served, attendees will be treated to all sorts of entertainment. The Center Sounds will be playing the old standards from the 20’s to the 40’s. The Caroling Strings will be showing off their talents as well. And popular high school bands, Think September and Tuesday Night will be on stage as well.
Or course, what’s a family event without a photo? LifeTouch photographers will be on hand through the evening to capture the moment. As bidders peruse the over 70 silent auction items they can take a moment to gather their friends and family together for a quick photo.
This night promises to be a true community gathering and because the donations will be distributed by the United Way of Southern Chester County, all proceeds from the night will stay in the community.
