Where?/When?: /Sunday, Aug. 7, Noon-6:30 p.m.
Why Go?: This dinner is to benefit Olivia Myers, who was born with a rare brain malformation called pachygyria.

The cost of the needed therapy is more than the family can afford. Activities of Sunday's event include a Chinese auction, 50/50 raffle, lottery tree and more. Dinner is provided by The Spaghetti Warehouse Restaurant.
Pricing: $10 per adult and $6 per child.
