Dig into Greenleaf spaghetti fundraiser

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Come out for spaghetti and song, at the second annual Allan A Greenleaf Spaghetti Supper.

The school's Parent Council has teamed up with East Side Mario's to deliver a delicious meal, alongside the homegrown prizes and entertainment.

Back again is the silent auction, filled with a wide variety of items, including themed gift baskets and crafts, made and assembled by students.

The entertainment will be first rate, with the middle school band taking the stage. The younger grades will also sing medleys from the 1920's and 1970's, according to Council member Janet Van Den Broek. One of the school's talented soloists, Gina Markle, will also wow the crowd.

New this year is the recently formed Grade 2 ukulele band, thanks to the class' substitute teacher, who brought her ukulele and a willingness to share.

The musical overtones aren't a coincidence; the proceeds from the event will benefit the school's music program, said Van Den Broek. Last year, the event raised between $5,000 and $6,000, which was used to purchase a scoreboard for the gym. This year, the funds will be used to buy instruments and music programming.

Tickets cost $10 each, and are available from the school's office, or any Greenleaf teacher.

Don't wait, warns Van Den Broek, as the event is selling out fast. But even those who miss out on dinner are free to check out the silent auction and the sounds of music.
