Plush Horse to top off Together We Cope’s Pasta Extravaganza on October 7
What could be better than choosing your dinner from a buffet of great pizza and pasta dishes? How about following it with a trip to an ice cream sundae bar, with treats provided by the Plush Horse Ice Cream Shoppe?
The dessert feature is the newest twist to Together We Cope’s popular “Pasta Extravaganza and A Nite at the Races.” Set for Wednesday, October 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Orland Chateau, 14500 S. LaGrange Road in Orland Park, the tickets are $25 for adults and $5 for children age 3 to 12.
The dinner features a wide variety of delicious food donated by dozens of south suburban restaurants that support TWC’s work in the region. It also gives diners lots of choices for their meal as they peruse the buffet.
Adding to the fun are the horse races featured in the event. Videotaped horse races are shown during the evening, giving diners the chance to place wagers with “funny money” they purchase at the door. Winnings are paid in tickets that diners can drop into baskets for drawings on many prizes to be given away that night.
The annual family-friendly event drew record attendance last year, proving to be one of Together We Cope’s most popular fundraisers. “Many of our supporters come to Pasta Extravaganza because they can bring the whole family,” said Karen Moran, TWC’s fundraising manager. “There’s something for everyone, and everybody has a good time.”
