Scholarship Dinner

This dinner was established in 2012 to help with the medical costs of school parent Julia Freilinger. Julia at the time was battling breast and bone cancer. This magical night raised over $20,000 to help Julia and her family with their medical bills. We are so happy to report our darling Julia is in full remission and is doing amazing!!

From 2012-2018, the Spaghetti Dinners each raised over $7,000 for the Gloria Strauss Scholarship Fund and the Marilyn Byers Alumni Fund.   

In 2019, the theme has changed from a spaghetti dinner to a Family Feud event, but our gaol remains the same, raising money for the scholarship funds.
