St. John’s Holds Taste of Italy


St. John’s Catholic church will be hosting A Taste of Italy dinner on Saturday November 12 from 5-8pm. A unique style of Northern Italian cuisine will be served at the church in Burton Hall including delicious lasagna, salad, garlic bread, fruits, homemade deserts and drinks. The dinner will be hosted by the Columbiettes, the women auxiliaries of the Knights of the Columbus Councils, and will help raise money to adopt a family for the Christmas season.

The idea for A Taste of Italy dinner began three years ago by the Columbiettes as they were thinking of ways to raise funds for Relay For LIfe, an event held in Milford and across the nation to raise awareness and money to fight against cancer. A Catholic Organization that works with several different groups, the Columbiettes plan to help facilitate fundraisers for St. Johns this year that will deal with social concerns of the community and help families during holiday seasons such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.

The Taste of Italy event will include Italian entertainment, silent auction, door prizes. A Christmas Tree will e set up adorned with multiple gift certificates from local restaurants such as Georgia House, Pizza Palace, Olive Garden and several businesses such as Wawa, Walmart, Food Lion and LeLoLI Coffee Shop and Espresso Bar. Participants can enter a chance to with the door along with the gift certificates, which will be given away on December 11 at a dinner after St. John’s annual Nativity Play.
