A local non-profit dedicated to helping local Springfield residents living in poverty, held its 28th annual spaghetti dinner Thursday night.
Hundreds of supporters came together for the Gray House, to raise money for food, educational services and youth programming for lower-income neighborhoods.
Tickets were only $5 but Thursday night’s event is expected to raise around $20,000.
Executive Director of the Gray House Teresa Liberti said the spaghetti supper is their largest fundraiser of the year counting for 10 percent of the agency’s budget.
“It’s a really fun event and we try to keep the cost low so that everyone can attend,” said Liberti.
This year, the Gray House honored their five founding sisters that made the agency a reality over 35 years ago.
