Valley of Hastings, NE, Fundraising Programs Serve Community & VMAP
VMAP Subject Area 8, Philanthropy & Public Image, tasks Valleys with conducting fundraising programs for Orient or Valley-specific charities (i.e. scholarships, RiteCare®
, etc.). Below are two such events in the Valley of Hastings, Nebraska.
The Hastings Valley Annual Spaghetti Feed Dinner was a great success! They sold 166 tickets, and volunteers served spaghetti, sauce, and bread- sticks from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hastings Masonic Center. In addition to dine-in dinners, volunteers also provided more than 100 carryout meals to families. When all was said and done, the Valley raised $2,458
The Spaghetti Feed owes a debt of gratitude to the following*:
- Bill “Doc” Carson, 32° KCCH, Chair
- Bob Scott, 32°
- RiteCare® Clinician Emily Johnson & her daughter Madeline
- Monte Malouf, 33°
- Steve Chapman
- Phil Odom, 33°, and Dana Odom
- Gertrude Kuehn
Plans are already in the works for the 2016 Spaghetti Feed”!
