It’s Almost Time for Our Annual Spaghetti Dinner to Benefit Veterans
When it comes to feasting in November, you probably think of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. But at Jan Dils, we think Veterans Day and our tradition of “spaghetti” first.
Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, is well known for getting Veterans the disability benefits they have earned and deserve. However, the firm’s advocacy doesn’t stop there. Our team of compassionate attorneys has a history of giving back to our personal heroes. Starting out as a Veterans Day cookout in 2012, the event moved to the Parkersburg Knights of Columbus in 2015 and evolved into a festive spaghetti dinner – making the event more accessible for our community of Veterans.
This year’s dinner will be held on November 7 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The dinner is free for Veterans. The cost for non-Veterans is $5.00. Children eight and under eat free with a paying adult. Dine in and carry out options are both available.
All funds raised will be donated to Operation Transportation, a program run through MOV Transit that provides free bus passes to Veterans. The program makes a real difference in the lives of local veterans every day, many of whom rely on it to attend medical appointments and commute to work.
“For the people who use it, it’s invaluable – for some people it’s the only way they can get around,” said Brian Schroeder, the TAMS and procurement officer at MOV Transit who oversees the program.
According to Schroeder, this specific program puts hundreds of bus passes in the hands of Veterans annually – with more than 6,000 free passes being distributed to date.
The dinner will also feature a raffle for several door prizes. Food and beverage will be provided by the Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, team. We look forward to sharing a great meal with great company. Follow us on social media for photos from the event.
