The annual Pasta Dinner was held at the OLA Parish Center on Saturday night October 8th, 2022. This event has the dual purpose of providing a fun social event for our parish families after the 4:00 mass on Saturday with a fundraising goal of raising money to support our general charity donation fund. Guests enjoyed a full Italian themed dining hall with beautiful Italian Flag centerpieces handmade by Regina Joly, a full Italian Flag sheet cake, all your Italian music favorites playing in the background and an authentic Italian meal prepared by our two chefs Carmine Maida and Rich Macklin.
We served over 150 people at the event that was expertly staffed by 43 Brother Knights and family members who donated over 300 volunteer hours. The meal, hall ambiance and service all drew rave reviews as our hospitality crews greeted guests at their tables and thanked everyone from attending. The new option for accepting credit cards was warmly welcomed, received very positive feedback and collected extra tips along with the 50/50 and Pay Beverage Service all helping generate additional revenue that will be converted into charitable donations.
