Diners who stop by the Maxwell House for spaghetti on Saturday will get treated to more than just the secret recipe spaghetti sauce. COPS West is having a fundraiser at the neighborhood restaurant and all food proceeds are going toward the community police station.
“Maxwell House is donating the food, and we’re hoping for a good turnout,” said Maurece Vulcano, program coordinator for COPS.
The evening’s silent auction features more than 60 items. Among them are overnight stays at a Red Lion hotel, a night at the Davenport, four Chiefs hockey tickets and a Gonzaga University basketball signed by this year’s team.
Last month, a fundraiser at Frontier West Restaurant raised about $350 for COPS North Central, Vulcano said, adding that she’s still waiting for the tally from a fundraiser at Golden Corral back in January.
This weekend’s fundraiser at Maxwell House, however, features much more than dinner so it should raise more money.
“We are hoping for a good chunk,” said Vulcano. “How’s that for a fundraising goal? They really need the support at COPS West.”
