Tickets are now available for the 2017 Sisters of St. Joseph Spaghetti Dinner, the biggest event of the year at the Nazareth Motherhouse.
The dinner is set for Sunday, March 12, with serving from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dinner tickets in advance are $8 for adults and $4 for children ages 5-12, and are available at the Motherhouse, at Manna House of Prayer and at Neighbor to Neighbor. They are also available by calling the Sisters of St. Joseph Development Office, 785-243-211, ext. 1221, or emailing email@example.com.
Dinner tickets at the door will be $10 for adults and $6 for children. (Children 4 and younger eat free.)
The theme of this year’s spring fundraiser is “A Tour of Italy,” and it features activities for the whole family and performances by local musicians. There will be drawings for prizes of up to $500 cash, a silent auction and the popular “grab bag,” with gifts for $1, $2 and $3. Homemade baked goods and Easter baskets will also be available for sale.
Throughout the event, the Nazareth Gift Shop will be open.
Ticket holders in the drawing decide which prize to try for. This year there are cash prizes of $500, $350 and $250, plus a five-burner CharBroil gas grill, a Keurig coffee maker, a $100 American Express gift card and a quilt handmade by Sister Betty Suther.
Winners will be drawn about 1:30 p.m., but you need not be present to win. Bidding in the silent auction will close at the same time.
In 2016, nearly 600 people attended the sisters’ spaghetti dinner, which raised almost $15,000 to support the Concordia sisters and their ministries.
