YWCA fundraiser Saturday features Italian dinner

The phone number for tickets was incorrect in last week’s article about the upcoming YWCA fundraiser, An Evening in Tuscany, which will help raise money to provide a safe place for people displaced by domestic violence.

The YWCA, 930 N. Monroe St., will host An Evening in Tuscany on Saturday with dinner made by former restaurant owner and chef Gina Lanza, of Amore and the Anaconda Grille in Spokane. The menu features artichoke pesto lasagna, served with a Caesar salad and an Italian dessert. Drinks and dessert will be served on the rooftop.

The money raised by the dinner and silent auction will benefit the YWCA Alternatives to Domestic Violence Safe Shelter and the women and children living there. The program also provides counseling, legal advice and support groups for those families.

Tickets are $50 per person, and the evening starts with a social hour at 6 p.m. Purchase tickets by calling community resource coordinator Melanie Wilson at (509) 863-2882 or email or call (208) 665-0282.
