LOCK HAVEN — With help from the Sons and Daughters of Italy in Lock Haven, three Central Mountain High School boosters were able to raise a combined $2,568.

Central Mountain’s Cross Country and Indoor booster clubs sold about 350 tickets in advance of the drive-thru dinner. The Indoor Booster club is comprised of the high school’s Color Guard and Majorettes. The spaghetti dinner was held on Wednesday evening.

Cross Country Booster member Amy Dressler said the Sons provided all the food, containers and pick-up space free of charge. “They make all of the food and we provided the desserts. We had the tickets printed as well,” she said.

Dressler said the night before, members of the Indoor Booster helped the Sons prepare the food for pick-up Wednesday evening.

She explained that the tickets were split between both boosters. However much money each raised in their ticket sales would be put towards their respective boosters.

Although this is the first year for Indoor Booster, Dressler said the Cross Country Booster has partnered with the Sons before.

“We did pretty well last year. We made a couple thousand dollars,” she said. “It’s a great fundraiser and the Sons of Italy is very generous in donating their time and resources to help us.”

With a large line of cars along the Sons building at 1 N. Henderson St., volunteers were kept busy while handing out dozens of meals to hungry supporters.

The Sons of Italy are known to offer support such as this to the community.

“We try to do one a month in the winter time, except for December. This year we’ve had one for boy scouts, another was special olympics and one was for a church in Farrandsville,” Sons President Dan Vilello said.

According to Vilello, the cost to purchase the spaghetti, hamburger, sauce and bread comes out of the Sons gambling proceeds and is considered a donation.

Vilello said working with the booster clubs was a great experience.

“They were very good groups to work with,” he said. “We like to support Central Mountain High School or any high schools really. We want to support the kids when they’re trying to raise money for their programs.”
