The Friendship Club Leadership Council is putting on a Spaghetti Dinner and Dessert Auction fundraiser this Saturday, October 6th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Grass Valley Veteran’s Hall. The Leadership Council is comprised of 12-15 girls in grades 7 through 12 who would like the opportunity to spend additional time with The Friendship Club, participate in community service above and beyond the activities in their weekly groups, and learn about leadership related topics. Involvement in the Leadership Council also provides a unique opportunity for girls to participate in a cross-age peer group while both strengthening their leadership skills and building a connection with their community. On average, girls that serve on Leadership Council complete about 40-60 hours of community service a year. As part of their learning, the girls in this group organize and execute a fundraiser for The Friendship Club. The Spaghetti Dinner and Dessert Auction provides an opportunity for the girls to put their skills to practice: they produce the posters and advertisements, sell tickets, decorate, shop for the food, cook the meal, serve the dinner to the guests, solicit donations for the dessert auction, etc. This is truly a girl-organized and run event.
We hope to see you there to support their hard work (and maybe bid on a dessert too)! Tickets are $7 in advance and can be purchased online. You can also get tickets at the door for $10. If you’re too busy to stay for this event, then you can always get your spaghetti dinner to go! We hope to see you on Saturday, October 6th at the Grass Valley Veteran’s Hall Lower Dining Room (enter through the back parking lot), from 5pm to 8pm!
