Starfish Pasta Party a Great Success
 
On November 28, 2015 the Aldergrove Rotary Club’s Starfish Pasta Party celebrated the generosity of local individuals and businesses who have supported the Aldergrove Starfish Backpack Program to date.  Thanks to their donations, the Aldergrove Starfish Backpack Program is able to provide food for 50 hungry kids in three local schools with weekend food for the current September-to- June school year. At the Pasta Party over 100 people paid $20.00 each for a delicious Italian meal that was generously provided and prepared by Carlo Bonetti, owner of Bonetti Meats. Along with even more individual donations, silent and live auction activities added to the evening’s proceeds (and fun). At time of writing, the total income from the pasta party is $6,000.00 and climbing.  Proceeds will be used to support hungry kids during the 2016-2017 school year. The cost to provide a Starfish Backpack full of weekend food for one child for one school year is $525.00.
