Join the sisters at March 13 Motherhouse Spaghetti Dinner

A dozen pieces from Jilka Furniture in Salina will be the center of a special silent art auction during this year’s annual Motherhouse Spaghetti Dinner, hosted by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.

The event is Sunday, March 13, with dinner served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Bud and Loretta Jilka, who last year closed their family’s two Salina stores, donated the artworks for the auction. The art will be displayed in the Abilene Room, near the dining room and auditorium. There will also be another silent auction area for quilts, kitchen items, two dolls, a six-person tent set  and several home décor pieces donated for the event.

There will also be drawings for prizes of up to $500 cash, plus 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, there will be live music in the auditorium and the Nazareth Gift Shop will be open.

Dinner tickets at the door are $10 for adults and $6 for children 5 to 12. (Children 4 and younger eat free.)

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 and a 73×74 handmade quilt.

Winners will be drawn about 1:30 p.m., but you need not be present to win. Bidding in the silent auction and art auction will close at the same time.

In 2015, nearly 600 people attended the sisters’ spaghetti dinner, which is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Concordia congregation.
