Eat Meatballs, Help a WWII Vet

Posted By on Sun, Feb 5, 2012 at 7:19 PM

Finally the two things American’s love more than anything else: Spaghetti and World War II vets.

Okay, maybe the first one is up for debate, but Bendites have a great opportunity to send some of the surviving members of the greatest generation to Washington, D.C. to see the relatively recently installed WWII Memorial

And all you have to do is chow a bowl of spaghetti to help. Jakes Diner will be hosting the feed on Sun. Feb. 19 at 4 p.m. Cost is $10 per plate with all proceeds going toward the local “Honor Flight”

This is the second such event. Last year’s event fully funded the Honor Flight for 10 local vets.
