Pasta Dinner,

We just completed our 6th Annual Pasta Dinner in Support of the Lovell Legends on Saturday 20 May 2017.    The Lovell Legends are a group of disabled veterans who will be competing against in multiple sporting events. This year, the team will consist of  women and  men disabled veterans and 2 coaches. The event was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, 17-22 July 2017. The costs for these athletes are almost entirely paid for by donations. Meals for the veterans are paid for by Corporate sponsors on competition days with all other expenses paid for by local donations.  We would like to thank Graziano’s Italian Restaurant, Bennisons Bakery, Great Harvest Bread Company, and Starbucks for their donations to the event, all the Post 42 Members and the Boy Scouts, Troop 3 who donated their time to make this the most successful event yet!!  As a result of your support, we have raised this year $6278.51 to support the team!!
