        The 22nd annual Lariette Spaghetti Dinner, Raffle and Silent Auction sponsored by the Coppell Lariette varsity drill team will be held from 5 to 7 pm on Friday, September 4th, at Coppell High School in the Commons before the first home football game.  The Coppell Cowboys will face off against McKinney Boyd High School.

            “This is the primary fundraiser for the Lariettes,” said Amy Saiter, LSO Fundraising Chairman.  “We also host a Junior Clinic and Showoffs, but this is the biggest event for the year.  We are grateful for the support we receive each year from family, friends, and the community.”

            The monies earned by the dinner will go to fund all the Lariette activities throughout the year including costumes, choreography, and competition fees.

Tickets for the event are $10 for the adult dinner and $5 for children ages 3 to 12.  Dinner is provided by Morris Salerno of Bistecca in Highland Village and includes spaghetti, bread, salad and a drink.  Dessert is available for an additional fee from the bake sale.   

            “The Lariettes are so grateful to Morris for his generous contribution to the Spaghetti Dinner for the past 22 years,” said Janet Johnson, LSO President.  “His commitment as a sponsor is one of the big reasons this event is such a success.”

            In addition to the dinner, there will be a silent auction and raffle.  Hundreds of items are available for bidding at the dinner including a one night stay and breakfast for two at Omni Park West, a tour of the Dallas Cowboy War Room and practice facility, event tickets, home décor, dining and entertainment gift cards, designer accessories, and much more.  Winning bidders the night of the dinner can pay for their silent auction purchases with cash, check, MasterCard or Visa before the game or Saturday morning.

             The raffle tickets are $5 and $1 and items include a 40” Smart LED TV, Go Pro Hero 3, golf outings, fine jewelry, portrait packages, Visa Gift cards, and more.  Tickets are available from any Lariette drill team member.
