Thomas – The sixth annual Pasta Palooza will be held at Cortland Acres on Thursday, May 10 and benefits both The Cortland Foundation and the Tucker County High School ProStart Program.
The meal is individually crafted for each guest by TCHS ProStart students and their program instructor, Carrie Shahan. As the name suggests, the event will include a variety of pasta and sauce options with a diverse selection of fresh ingredients to be added such as crushed garlic, fresh spinach, meatballs, grilled chicken, sweet Italian sausage and much more. The menu also includes Caesar salad, garlic bread, freshly brewed ice tea or fresh squeezed lemonade and dessert.
This popular annual event is just one way The Cortland Foundation works to secure resources to help Cortland Acres provide and expand quality care and services to the Tucker County Community and surrounding area. Now in its seventh year, the Foundation and its board members actively engage the local community with fundraising events throughout the year.
“The annual Pasta Palooza is a wonderful community event,” explains Foundation assistant, Lois Nelson. “This year, thanks to events such as this, visitors will be able to see completed renovations facility-wide. This occasion, and others throughout the year, really helps secure resources to enhance the health and well-being of the Cortland community”.
