The public is invited to a fund-raiser Saturday, November 21 to provide groceries for the "F" Street Community Center's supper program, which serves thousands of free meals annually to children in the Everett and Near South neighborhoods. The event is from 5 to 8 p.m. at O'Rourke's Tavern, 1329 "O" St. It is sponsored by Star City Scene, an organization which promotes local music in Lincoln.
Funds will be raised through food sales and a silent auction for art and ornaments. Beverage charges are not part of the fund-raising event.
"The need for this program has continued to grow over the years," said Doug Kasparek, "F" Street Community Center Director. "Assistance from this fund-raising event goes a long way in helping this service meet the demand."
The "F" Street Community Center is part of the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department, and more information is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
