Highlights from MSH’s 4th Annual Eastern Shore Event
Main Street Housing’s 4th Annual SPAGANZA! Pasta Dinner Benefit Event on March 31, 2016 was a bella notte in celebration and support of our thriving operations on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The sold-out event brought together friends and neighbors for a delicious meal in the charming waterfront dining room of the Elks Lodge #1272 in Cambridge, MD.
“The SPAGANZA! is always a joyful night, and this year was really terrific!,” said MSH Executive Director, Ken Wireman. A team of volunteers and MSH staff served up a full four-course meal: fruit and cheese buffet, followed by salad and heaping plates of spaghetti and meatballs swimming in Ken’s special homemade tomato sauce. Cake and ice cream were the perfect dolce finale. In between courses, attendees perused Silent Auction tables filled to the brim with donated items from businesses in Cambridge, Easton, St. Michaels and Centreville.
“We feel really lucky to have such wonderful supporters across the Mid-Shore,” said Gloria Bowen, Eastern Regional Property Manager. “It’s a great feeling to look around the room and see so many friends and colleagues, and to know that your community really cares about people in need. This year, we had several businesses donate for the first time after they heard about our mission.”
Mille Grazie to our Event Sponsors: Beacon Health Options (Premier), M&T Bank (Platinum), Freestate & Son Insurance (Gold) and Eddie Mangold of Benson & Mangold Real Estate (Silver), whose tremendously generous support made the event possible. Proceeds from the evening support our operations across the Eastern Shore, where we offer 17 units of quality, affordable, independent housing in the community for individuals and families living with psychiatric disabilities.
