Visit the Eaton Area Senior Center on Saturday, Dec. 15 between 6 and 8 p.m. for a spaghetti fundraiser dinner that will benefit the Charlotte Fire Department’s Christmas Kiddies fund. In addition to the spaghetti dinner, there will be a Touch-A-Truck opportunity with one of the Charlotte Fire Department’s firetrucks.

The fire department has been doing the Christmas Kiddies fund since 1906, providing hundreds of children with toys and surprising them with a visit from Santa. Every member of the CFD gives a little bit of their time on Christmas Eve to deliver these presents and a little bit of Christmas cheer. 

This is the fourth year that EASC will be hosting the fundraiser dinner, with 100 percent of the donations going to the fund. The EASC director and board members will provide food, while firefighters will be helping serve tables. They are also offering to-go plates. 

The suggested donations are $10 for adults and $5 for kids with ages 2 and under being free. Tickets are available on the event page on Facebook and can also be purchased at the door.
