On Saturday evening, October 18, 2014, Knights of Columbus Council 14360 will host its Third Annual Columbus Day Macaroni Dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Great Room of St. Matthew Church in Norwalk. The third edition of the dinner, which is open to all, promises to be another fun and successful night, with delicious Italian food, great company, and a 50/50 raffle.
“Last year’s Columbus Day Dinner was a complete sellout,” recalled Grand Knight George Ribellino, Jr. “We had a record number of people, nearly 230, attend, and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the evening.”
“The great thing was that not only did the dinner enable us to raise much- needed funds to help others in our community, but nearly every attendee that night also brought with them a can of food for St. Matthew’s Food Pantry, which led to the pantry being fully re-stocked as a result,” said Ribellino.
Continuing the tradition begun last year, the Knights are asking all those attending this year’s dinner to consider bringing a non-perishable food item for the food pantry. Anyone who brings an item will also be eligible for a door prize.
The cost of the dinner is $17.00 for adults and $7.00 for children 10 and under.Those who cannot attend but would still like to help Council 14360 raise money to help others may also make a donation of any amount (checks should be made payable to Knights of Columbus Council 14360 and can be left in the St. Matthew Parish Office).
