ISU College of Pharmacy spaghetti feed, raffle and auction set Feb. 28 organizers seek sponsors

Posted January 17, 2014

Listed as 18th on the Idaho State Journal’s list of 101 things to do in Pocatello, the Idaho State University College of Pharmacy Spaghetti Feed, Raffle and Auction has become a community event that shouldn’t be missed.

In it’s 21st year, this year’s event will take place Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. in the Pond Student Union Ballroom.
Hosted by the College’s Professional Pharmacy Student Alliance, (PPSA) proceeds from the event will once again help fulfill the wish of a Make-A-Wish child.

This year’s Make-A-Wish child is Yadira, an 18-year-old girl who was diagnosed with leukemia several years ago.

When asked about her wish to “receive assistance with college tuition,” Yadira said, “Many people want to go somewhere or meet someone but all I want to be is someone I would be very proud to know.”
Yadira recently graduated from high school. At least 25 percent of the proceeds from the Spaghetti Feed will go to make Yadira’s wish come true. The remaining will go to fund the College of Pharmacy’s rural community patient outreach projects, for which the college has received national recognition.

There are two ways individuals or businesses can support the 21st Annual Pharmacy Spaghetti Feed, Raffle and Auction. The first is a cash sponsorship for which a company will be given special recognition as one of the event’s sponsors with the business logo appearing on all of the event’s promotional materials. The second way to support the event is to donate an item to help make the raffle, silent auction and live auctions a great success. Over the next month, the College of Pharmacy will be contacting people and businesses to gather items for this event.

Tickets are $5 per person and $25 per family.
