Chef Morris Salerno of Bistecca Italian Steakhouse restaurant poses with the 2017-2018 Coppell Lariettes.
The 28th annual Lariette Spaghetti Dinner, Raffle and Silent Auction, sponsored by the Coppell Lariette Varsity Drill Team, will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, September 8th, at Coppell High School in the Commons before the first home football game of the season. The Coppell Cowboys will face off against McKinney Boyd.
"The Spaghetti Dinner is a beloved Coppell community event and the primary fundraiser for our girls," said Cindy Wylie, LSO Fundraising Chair. "We also host a Junior Clinic and Showoffs, but for us, this is the biggest event of our year. We are very grateful for the continued support we receive from the community, our family, and friends."
The proceeds from the fundraiser will support 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 Italian Steakhouse in Highland Village and includes spaghetti, bread, salad and a drink. Dessert is available for an additional fee from the bake sale.
"Along with our thanks to the community, we would like to express our gratitude to Morris, a former Lariette parent, for his continued support for 28 years. It is due to his dedication that the Lariette Service Organization is able to make the dinner a success," said Lorraine Carroll, LSO President
