This Saturday, March 9 2013, the Torrance Firefighters Association will hold their 41st Annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser to benefit the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation (www.aarbf.org). The dinner will be held at the Ken Miller Recreation Center Auditorium. The money raised goes towards sending children to Champ Camp, a week long, residential summer camp for burn survivors ages 5-16, who have been treated at California hospitals or are current residents of California.
Tanya and I went last year and had a great time. While it is put on by the Torrance Firefighters Association, there is participation from agencies all over the area lending a hand. Over the years the Torrance Firefighters Association has served more than 50,000 dinners and raised more than $180,000. This is definitely a family friendly event and is priced to fit any budget at $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for children under the age of 8. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
The event begins at 4:30PM and will run until 8:00PM. The Ken Miller Recreation Center Auditorium is located at 3341 Torrance Boulevard, Torrance, CA 90503. That is Torrance Blvd and Madronna by the library. I hope to see you there, and if you see my camera pointed at you, smile.
