Sponsored by Pastor Rick Wells, the fundraising event is making its return by popular demand.
“We held these luncheons every month when we were raising money to repair our building and they were always well attended,” he said. “We net anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500 each time we do it – so, that’s a lot of sauce!”
Speaking of the sauce. Homemade, slow-cooked and deliciously seasoned, diners will have the opportunity to choose from two different marinaras – a hearty meat sauce and a classic meatless. The meat sauce includes beef and pork.
In addition to spaghetti noodles with a choice of homemade sauce, each plate will include Italian bread, green beans, a green salad and one scrumptious homemade serving of dessert made by the ladies of the congregation. Drinks will be available for those who dine in the church’s Fellowship Hall.
“The sauce is on now and will simmer all night,” said Pastor Wells who looks forward to sharing food and fellowship with others. “As usual, this is a donations only fundraiser. Some people give a $1 and others $20 and that’s okay. We only ask that you contribute whatever is on your heart to give. If you don’t have the money and can’t make a donation, we still want you to come eat with us and maybe you can do so some other time.”
According the pastor, 100 percent of the proceeds will help cover the Cantata as well as upgrading the church’s multi-media center.
“We usually start wrapping things up and cleaning around 1 p.m., but typically stay around until 2 p.m. to see that all the stragglers are fed,” he said. “We are again offering delivery in the greater Corinth area as we have in the past.”
Those taking advantage of the delivery option are asked to pre-order as early as possible, but at least 30 to 45 minutes in advance to allow drivers time to figure out their routes.
Those dining in or picking up need not call ahead.
