Pasta Dinners Una Pasta tra Amici
This VIC event is our annual fundraiser, usually held in January or February, and looked forward to by members and their guests. The cooking and food preparation are done by volunteers and items for a raffle are donated by local friends and sponsors. Good food and conversation make the event enjoyable for everyone.
The 2013 pasta dinner was held on January 27th at the Elks club in Burlington. This has become a popular event and more than 100 people attended. Dinner included pasta with local and homemade sauces, salad, antipasto, locally made bread, and many sumptuous homemade desserts including cannoli, pizzelli, and olive oil cake. This year's dinner also included gluten free pasta. Local businesses and sponsors donated items for a raffle which included gift certificates to local Italian restaurants. Music was provided by our very talented young violinist. Everyone agreed the evening was a big success.
