Bringing attention to breast cancer awareness was all it took for South Pasadena firefighters to get behind a spaghetti dinner next month.
October is breast cancer awareness month.
Urging the public to bring a big appetite, the South Pasadena Firefighters Association will hold its first-ever spaghetti dinner on Saturday, October 19, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the South Pasadena fire station, home of Engine 81, 817 Mound Avenue in the city.
“Having grown up with many family and friends that have had the unfortunate circumstance of developing breast cancer, we know that breast cancer research is improving care, providing better outcomes and transforming lives each and everyday,” explained South Pasadena Firefighter Justin Miller.
“By increasing the funding for the research of breast cancer we are getting closer than ever before to find the cure. The South Pasadena Firefighters Association would like to thank the outpouring support that we have received from our sponsors, we look forward to bringing our community together for such a great cause.”
Tickets, $7 for adults and $3 for children under 8 years old, can be purchased prior to the event at the fire station or at the door.
The event consists of a full spaghetti dinner with pasta, salad, ice cream and more.
Raffle tickets, to win prizes from local businesses at the dinner, will be on sale.
Breast cancer awareness t-shirts, sponsored by Ellen’s Silkscreening on Mission Street in South Pasadena, will also be sold at the event.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to The City of Hope Breast Cancer Research.
