2nd Annual Macaroni Dinner a huge success

St. Matthew Church’s Masterpol Great Room was packed to capacity on Saturday evening, October 5, 2013 for Council 14360’s 2nd Annual Columbus Day Macaroni Dinner. With nearly 230 guests, the dinner was officially sold out and by any measure a huge success, raising money for the local charitable causes supported by the Council.

Many attendees also brought with them non-perishable food items to help re-stock the St. Matthew Church food pantry. A large amount of food was collected and a raffle for an impressive Italian-themed gift basket was held, with all those who donated a food item receiving a ticket. Parishioner Tina McDermott was the lucky winner.

A number of awards were presented at the dinner, including the following:

– Special Awards for many years of service to the K of C:  Bill Berger and Paul Bowles

– Award of Special Thanks: Steve Buckett

– St. Matthew Parish Family of the Year Award: The Bouffard family

– Council 14360 Family of the Year: The O’Connor family

– Council 14360 Service Appreciation Award: A.J. Cossuto

– Knight of the Year: Mike Colaluca, Past Grand Knight

The event was chaired once again by Grand Knight George Ribellino and Deputy Grand Knight Scott Criscuolo. Special thanks go out to John and Paula Corrado for providing some wonderful music and to Megan Riobo for her dynamic guest vocal performance. Thanks also to Steve Buckett and Zody’s 19th Hole for providing the delicious food and drinks for all to enjoy. Additional thanks are due to Anthony Armentano, Heather Ribellino, Nona Rudd, Donna Grippe, and Terri Sargent for all of their efforts in making the evening so successful.

We hope to see everyone again on March 8, 2014 for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner!  Thank you all for supporting the worthy local causes that benefit from our fundraising dinners.
