The Soldotna Senior Center will host a fall fundraiser dinner and auction on Saturday.
Executive Director Loretta Spalding said the fundraiser was once an annual event, but this is the first since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose is to raise funds for meal service at the center.
“We provide meals in-house and then we have home delivery meals and we provide between 70 to 90 a day,” Spalding said. “We did not get one of our big grants this year, so most of this money is going towards feeding the seniors in our area.”
Tickets are nearly sold out, Spalding said, but there will be room for “a little bit of walk-in traffic.” She said that if the event sells out, people can still come, listen to the band and participate in the auction.
At the event, there will be prime rib “and all the fixings,” country music by Mark Hutton, and an auction, both silent and outcry, with Sen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, as the auctioneer.
“We have so much good stuff,” Spalding said. “We always have a great time at the Soldotna Senior Center.”
More information can be found at the Soldotna Senior Center Facebook page. Tickets can be purchased at the Soldotna Senior Center. The event will run from 6-9 p.m.
