It is a Saturday evening and you are in your dorm room trying to decide if you should microwave some Ramen or eat leftovers, but on March 11 your options expand to dinner and a show.
Grace B. Luhrs University Elementary School (GBLUES) will host its annual spaghetti fundraiser from 4–7 p.m. in Kriner Dining Hall. In addition to a meal, the school will be having a talent show for guests to enjoy. The acts include everything from singing to short skits.
This is the second time the school has included a talent show with its spaghetti dinner. In addition, GBLUES will be having a silent auction with items donated from individuals, families and local businesses. Bids can be made throughout the evening.
The spaghetti dinner is put together by the GBLUES Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), and is typically its largest fundraiser. Proceeds are used for school equipment and activities, like Camp GBLUES. Camp GBLUES is a two-day hands-on environmental experience at Camp Penn United Methodist Church Camp in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.
“GBLUES appreciates the support it receives from all parts of the Shippensburg University community. SU students are a vital part of the GBLUES family, too,” PTO member Heather Wadas said. “If you are around that weekend, you need to eat anyway, might as well help the school as you do so.”
Dinner includes spaghetti, salad, bread and dessert and costs $8 for adults and $4 for children, ages 6–11. There is no charge for children 5 and under. To purchase tickets, call the GBLUES office at (717) 477-1612, or purchase at the door on Saturday.
