100 Club of San Antonio Annual Spaghetti Dinner, 7-12

L-R: Photo from 2008 dinner

The 100 Club is a non-profit organization that benefits fallen Firefighters and Police Officer families.

Everything the 100 Club does is based on contributions. I know that times are tough for everyone. About 10 years ago the Christopher Columbus Italian Society decided to have a fundraiser for the 100 Club. You guessed it, spaghetti.

Ever since this event has been a major fundraiser for the 100 Club. Last year through corporate sponsorships and ticket sales we were able to raise over $27,000. We also served a little over 3000 plates of spaghetti and homemade meatballs.

This money was divided up between the children of Firefighters and Police Officers killed in the line of duty and added to their trusts.Sunday, July 12th starting at 11 a.m. with continued service until 6 p.m.. (don't wait until 6 because it will be all gone) we will be serving a heaping plate of spaghetti with meatballs, bread, and a salad for only $7 per plate.

You can either dine in and enjoy the atmosphere or you can bring a container and get the spaghetti to go. If you don't know the meatballs are all made from scratch and are rolled by hand the Friday before. The sauce is also made from scratch which makes this the best plate of spaghetti and meatballs you will ever have.The event takes place at Columbus Hall located at 100 Piazza Italia.

Please visit the 100 Club of San Antonio website for more information on this group and how to become a member.

Thanks again for your continued support,

Adam Zeldes
