Save the date, March 27, for the annual Spaghetti for Smiles event!

Each year, IUP's National Student Speech Language Hearing Association hosts Spaghetti for Smiles, a spaghetti dinner fundraiser. All of the proceeds raised during the event are donated directly to Operation Smile, an organization that helps fund surgeries for children born with cleft lip / cleft palate around the world.

Here are the details for the 2020 event:

  • When: Friday, March 27, 5:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Where: St. Thomas More University Parish in Indiana, Pennsylvania.

Tickets to the event are $5. At the event, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to use for the various baskets and items donated by members of NSSLHA and the IUP community. You do not have to be present to win.

Pre-sale dinner tickets can be purchased ahead of time and will include a chance to win the door prize donated by the IUP Student Co-Op store. You may pay at the door.

The option for take-out dinners is available if you are not able to join us for the full event. If you are interested in attending and would like to purchase a pre-sale ticket to be included in the door prize drawing, please reach out to IUP NSSLHA's president, Toni Smay, via email at

NSSLHA is a student group in the Department of Communication Disorders, Special Education, and Disability Services.
