Lycoming College students to sponsor spaghetti dinner to raise funds for children battling cancer

Members of Lycoming College’s chapter of Circle K International are hosting a spaghetti dinner to raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund that supports children battling cancer and their families. The dinner will be held Oct. 29 from 4 to 8 p.m. in the American Rescue Workers Community Church, 25 Ross Street, Williamsport. Participation is open to the community.

“Our Circle K International chapter is pleased to offer an inexpensive, family-friendly dinner for folks in Williamsport,” said Chantelle Lutz ’19, a corporate communications major and Circle K member who is chairing the event. “Enjoy an easy Saturday night meal, where all proceeds go directly toward helping children and their families struggling with a life-threatening disease.”

Purchase tickets at the door; $7 for adults and $5 for children 2 to 12 years of age, and free for children under 2 years. The all-you-can-eat meal includes spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread, salad and dessert. Meals are available for dining in or taking out.

Circle K International fosters friendship among members and develops leadership qualities through service projects. Questions can be directed to Chantelle Lutz, 570-620-8821, lycomingcki@gmail.com.

Each year, the Four Diamonds Fund provides direct support to approximately 600 children with cancer — 100 who are newly diagnosed and 500 who are continuing their fight — who are being treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. The fund supports children and their families through superior care and comprehensive support. The fund also supports a variety of innovative research geared to improving treatments and cures to benefit those around the world.
