Last but definitely not least, here is the third idea for giving local and making a difference.  This one will have you coming away with a deep sense of "fullness".

Event #3

What: Spayghetti Dinner
When: Monday April 18, 2011 5-8pm
Where: Wagon Wheel Restaurant, Madison, Ohio
To Benefit: The Ashtabula County Animal Protective League

This is one is a no-brainer.  We all have to eat, right?  What better than to have a great spaghetti dinner and raise money for the local animal shelter!  I have been to a couple of these and they are VERY well attended and for good reason.  The food is great.  The homemade desserts are great.  The atmosphere is great.  The people are great.  Oh I could go on and on.  They always get a bunch of great donations for a Chinese auction and have a 50:50 raffle.

The Ashtabula County Animal Protective League is the largest shelter in our county.  When you call the dog warden to pick up a stray dog, this is where they go.  The people who work and volunteer at this shelter are saints!  Really!  They have such a hard job to do caring for all these animals and they do it with such compassion.  A truly amazing group of people.  But once again, this is an organization that relies HEAVILY on donations in order to take care of all those animals. 

I know times are tough and money is tight, but like I said in the opening paragraph, we all have to eat.  Tickets are $8 and $7 of that goes to the ACAPL.  You cannot beat that!  For more information head over to the ACAPL web site.  You can even purchase tickets online.  Can it be any easier?  Dinner, dessert, fun!
