Spaghetti Dinner exceeds expectations

CALUMET — Saturday’s CopperDog 150 spaghetti dinner fundraiser was an enormous success that far exceeded hopes and expectations, said Doug Harrer, CopperDog 150 Chairman of the Board said.

“We were expecting maybe 150 people for the event,” he said, “and more than 300 came out.”

Initially, Harrer was hoping the event would raise approximately $2,000 after expenses, but the huge turnout brought in about $4,000 after expenses.

Harrer had said on Thursday that the organization’s budget was a bit short this year, and the board decided a spaghetti dinner would be a good way to raise some of the necessary funds. Thanks to a generous public, he said, the event went far better than expected.

“We sold out,” said Harrer. “We didn’t run out of food, we had enough, thank God, but we did sell out.”

The Daily Mining Gazette will publish an update to this story once the Board records its information.
