Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner & Silent Auction to be held February 4th

The Kiwanis Club of Phoenixville will hold a spaghetti dinner and silent auction on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at the Kimberton Fire Company. The event is being held by the Kiwanis Club in partnership with the Firebird Children’s Theater which provides theater opportunities to children of the area. A spaghetti dinner, provided by Franco’s Italian Restorante, will be served from 5:30 to 7 PM with the auction beginning at 7 PM. Hundreds of items will be up for bid in the silent auction with several special items offered in a live auction.

Over the years, the Kiwanis Club has partnered with various community groups to support their programs. This year’s dinner/auction will aid the Firebird Children’s Theater in extending the theater experience to more children in our community and will also support Kiwanis Club projects to benefit children. Past dinner/auctions have raised almost $90,000 and have helped furnish a children’s medical examination room at The Clinic, helped fund the summer reading program of the Phoenixville Library and build a new playground for Barkley Elementary School. Recent dinner/auctions have provided scholarships to the summer camp program of the Community That Cares organization and helped build playgrounds at Franklin Commons for Stepping Stones and Phoenixville Children’s Learning Center.

Tickets to the dinner/auction are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. It is strongly recommended that tickets be purchased in advance as total ticket sales are limited to 400 persons. Tickets may be purchased through the Kiwanis Club of Phoenixville (610-933-9575) or the Firebird Children’s Theater (610-324-8425) or from members of both organizations.
