Over the Spring 2019 semester, students enrolled in HOSP 310 Professional Development in the Hospitality Industry collaborated with IndiKids Daycare administration to plan and execute a spaghetti dinner fundraiser.

The students planned, organized, and executed the whole event from obtaining donations to preparing and cooking the food, and serving during the event. The spaghetti dinner took place March 26 from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. in The Allenwood. The dinner offered pasta with sauce, meatballs, bread, salad, and cookies along with the option of dining in or taking your order to go. The fundraiser was a success, raising $1,064 for the daycare.
