2012 Pasta Cook-Off Results

       The 2012 Pasta Cook-Off, our signature fund was an overwhelming success!  We had a great crowd, lots of good food, a successful dessert auction, awesome celebrity judges and our guest Emcee and special guests Chef Walter and Chilly Bear.  The event involved over 100 actual volunteers including youth groups, ticket takers, servers, and so many more.  Everyone had a great time once again and the best news is we far exceeded our goal.  To date we have raised over $53,500!!
    We want to say a HUGE thank you to our sponsors, donors and the committee members who worked so hard to make this event so successful and last, but not least, all the volunteers who helped at the event.  We could not have done it without you.
