PITTSBURG — The Pittsburg Lions Club is bringing back its spaghetti dinner, this weekend to raise funds for local vision and hearing efforts.
The Lions Club will be serving spaghetti and sides from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, at Wesley House. Wesley House is located at 411 E. 12th Street in Pittsburg. All proceeds from the event go toward vision and hearing programs, and all stay local.
First Vice President and Membership Coordinator Lori Horton said the club is excited to bring back the dinner tradition.
“We haven’t been able to do this dinner for a few years now,” she said. “So we are happy to get back into the fundraising meal.”
The cost per meal will be six dollars, and will include spaghetti, salad, Frontenac bread and dessert. Carryout meals will also be available.
In conjunction with the meal, Wesley House will host a Christmas raffle.
“All money from the raffle will go back to Wesley House,” Horton said. “It will be used to stock the food pantry for the holidays.”
In addition, the dinner will take place on Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is a national shopping day, during which consumers are encouraged to shop locally at small businesses. Many small businesses offer deals during the day.
“Since we are hosting the dinner on Small Business Saturday, we’re encouraging people to shop local,” Horton said. “If people bring a local receipt, you’ll receive one free raffle ticket.”
The special offer will be limited to one free entry per person. The receipt must be dated November 25 and be from a local Pittsburg or Frontenac business.
