34th Annual Exchange Club Spaghetti Dinner Moves Online Saturday, April 17th

The Exchange Club of Sugar Land’s 34th Annual Spaghetti Dinner will be held virtually on Saturday, April 17th at 6 pm online. Previously, the club held this event in-person every year. However, due to Covid-19 and all associated challenges, the club has chosen to hold this event virtually this year.

President Paul Barnett said, “It’s amazing how wonderful the community support has been for this event, and this year’s fundraiser is more critical than ever.”

Raffle tickets and sponsorships can be bought by texting noodle to 71777 and filling out the donor form, or by connecting online to app.mobilecause.com/vf/Noodle. The live event can be viewed at www.facebook.com/sugarlandmorningexchange. The auction is slated to open on April 1st so there will be plenty of time to shop. Visit www.32auctions.com/Spaghetti2021.

This is the club’s primary annual fund-raising event. Previous events included local law enforcement agencies and fire departments preparing a variety of spaghetti sauces and competing to win the cook-off trophy. This family-oriented dinner featured great raffle prizes, a live auction, a silent auction, and a kid’s area with fun and games. Although they cannot hold events in this manner now, their organization’s fund raising needs are greater than ever.

The funds raised allow The Exchange Club of Sugar Land to continue supporting local non-profits, including Child Advocates of Fort Bend, Fort Bend County Women’s Center, Texana Children’s Center for Autism, Fort Bend Council on Substance Abuse, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, Crime Stoppers, YMCA, Literacy Council of Fort Bend and many others.

These funds also support community service projects:

• Santa’s Exchange distributes over 10,000 toys annually to underprivileged children.

• Back to School Bash provides backpacks, school supplies and new shoes for kids needing a head start before the new school year.

• Give a Kid a Flag to Wave distributes over 30,000 American flags along the Fort Bend County Fair and Houston Rodeo parade.

• Service to Seniors provides a monthly party for Fort Bend Seniors, as well as health and entertainment events.

• Youth of the Month recognizes Fort Bend ISD students for outstanding academic achievement and good citizenship.

• One Nation Under God breakfast honors our veterans and active military members.
