Gigi’s Fundraiser a Success

The recent Gigi’s spaghetti dinner fundraiser sponsored by the Webster/Fairport Elks Lodge on Sept. 29 was a great success.

The Lodge raised about $700 for Gigi’s Playhouse, a learning center for students with Down Syndrome.

Members of the lodge were assisted by students and their families, who served dinner, waited on tables and helped clean up. A special thanks to Bob Avalon who has a passion for Gigi’s and arranged this fundraiser

Here are a few photos from the evening:
