The numbers are in!
More than $6,000.00 was raised from Papa Joe’s 34th Anniversary Pasta Fest! More than 1600 pasta meals were served, with proceeds going to The Arc Nature Coast towards their plans to build a new Life Skills Center in East Hernando County. This contribution included sales of pasta dinners, game and door prize ticket sales and also 10% of all meals sold at the restaurant the previous weekend.
We’d like to thank everyone who worked on the planning committee, as well as all the volunteers, donors and those who came to support the event by purchasing meals for all you can eat pasta for 99 cents.
We are so grateful to “Papa” Joe and “Mama” Donna Giarratano for their generosity and support to assist us with our campaign to build our new Life Skills Center for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in East Hernando County. They are truly a philanthropic family and we appreciate their support!
