Boys & Girls Club serves up annual spaghetti feast


Crockett’s Cafeteria is ready to serve up a hearty spaghetti feast using more than 80 pounds of noodles as part of the 25th annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Baldwin and Jones Counties.

“We use about 300 pounds of ground chunk, which is leaner and healthier meat, and about 85 pounds of noodles and 35 pounds of onions. The sauce also has celery and mushrooms,” said Paul Bernard, executive director of the local Boys & Girls Club. “This is one of our steady fundraisers every year, no matter if the economy is bad or good; it’s been consistent for us.”

The feast is slated from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Crockett’s Cafeteria, located in the Fun! Factory shopping center off North Columbia Street. Tickets are $5 in advance and $6 at the door, and can be purchased at Crockett’s, 1850 N. Columbia St., Boys & Girls Club locations and Rainforest & Reef, 1883 N. Columbia St. Spaghetti plates are available for dine-in, takeout or drive-thru.

“For $5, the dinner also includes a drink, sweet or unsweet tea, cole slaw, bread, an oatmeal cream pie and a peach,” Bernard said. “You can get a complete meal for $5; it’s a win-win for everybody. It’s the perfect time for this because everybody is out shopping, and this is one of the fundraisers that everyone can participate in because the prices are so low.”

Sponsors from the Milledgeville-Baldwin County area have made the spaghetti dinner possible. This year, Captain D’s, LongHorn Steakhouse and Golden Corral are among several businesses donating funds and supplies.

“We couldn’t do this without our sponsors. Everything is donated. We thank everybody for helping us make it possible to help keep the price low,” Bernard said. “We even have people from surrounding counties come to get a spaghetti dinner. The spaghetti has become part of the community and our tradition.”
