Lawrenceville has long had a tradition of spaghetti dinners. A group called the Boys of Lawrenceville started holding these dinners back in 2004 as a way to bring the community together. The Post-Gazette has an article about the 2007 Spaghetti dinner here which offers a little bit more into the history of the group.
The Lawrenceville Spaghetti dinner is back for 2012 to raise funds to support the Bernard Dog Run, an off leash do g park to be constructed in Lawrenceville which is named after one of the founders of the Boys of Lawrenceville.
You can learn about the Bernard Dog Run and read the proposal here. (I want to take a quick moment to point out that they have done an AMAZING job with this website – simple and easy to find the most important information you are looking for – if you are looking to set up a website for a community event – use this one as an example).
On Friday, March 2, 2012 – you can support the Bernard Dog Run by eatting some spaghetti – vegetarian sauce (meatballs optional), as well as fresh bread, salad, dessert, beer, and wine!
The 2012 spaghetti dinner will be held at the Teamster Temple, 4701 Butler Street, from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and the evening will include entertainment, raffles and Italian music. Proceeds from the event will also benefit local nonprofit animal resource center, Animal Friends.
Advanced tickets are available at Eclipse Lounge, Espresso a Mano, Gallery on 43rd Street, Lawrenceville United and online for $11 per person. Tickets bought at the door will be $13 per person, and children under the age of 10 eat free.
