Hope & Love 4 Kids to raise funds for Hays County student scholarships
KYLE — Hope & Love 4 Kids will host the third annual Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser & Silent Auction on May 18 at City Hall in Kyle. All proceeds benefit the Hendricks Hope Scholarship Foundation.
The Hope & Love 4 Kids Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser & Silent Auction was created in 2011 by the Scholarship Committee to provide three students in Hays County with the opportunity to attend post-secondary education.
Hope & Love 4 Kids founder Mia Hendricks said the organization has been very successful in its efforts to fund the scholarships via the inaugural and second annual event.
“Since 2011, we’ve sent five Hays County students to colleges and other schools around Central Texas because of this charity event,” Hendricks said.
To continue their effort in providing students in Hays County the opportunity to achieve higher education, Hope & Love 4 Kids will again host the annual event.
Supporters who attend can expect a three-course meal in a historic venue, served by the Hope & Love 4 Kids board of directors and volunteers. The event includes musical entertainment, opportunities for networking and social engagements and a silent auction.
Dinner is catered by Bailey’s Burgers. The menu includes a choice of salad, a main course of spaghetti and meatballs in homemade sauce with garlic bread and dessert. Tea, water and coffee will be served.
“Our guests come back year after year for the spaghetti and meatballs,” board member Leata Bartlett said. “Helping send kids to college never tasted so good.”
Dinner will be served between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m., and the silent auction will be held between 6 and 8 p.m. The auction’s highest bidder will be announced at 8:30 p.m.
