Torrance Firefighters’ 41st Annual Spaghetti Dinner

These photos were taken Saturday at the Torrance Firefighters Association’s 41st Annual Spaghetti Dinner which is a fundraiser to benefit the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation (www.aarbf.org). The proceeds go towards sending young burn victims to Champ Camp, a week long summer camp for burn survivors ages 5-16. In addition to the spaghetti dinners served, the women’s auxiliary of the Torrance Firefighters Association had a bake sale with all kinds of homemade goodies.

It was another fine turnout and all the volunteers made sure cups were filled and tables were cleared and set for the next guest. I know there had to have been several hundred people served in the short time we were there and the only time there was a wait was a brief period that they had run out of plates. The servings were big, the food was great and the people were friendly. I recommend marking it on your calendar for next year and bring the entire family. Continue reading

Enjoying a great dinner with friends

Tanya and I went last year and had a great time. While it is put on by the Torrance Firefighters Association, there is participation from agencies all over the area lending a hand. Over the years the Torrance Firefighters Association has served more than 50,000 dinners and raised more than $180,000. This is definitely a family friendly event and is priced to fit any budget at $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for children under the age of 8. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Continue reading

Torrance Fire Fighters Association 40th Annual Spaghetti Dinner

These photos were taken tonight at the 40th Annual Spaghetti Dinner to benefit the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation which was sponsored by the Torrance Fire Fighters Association. The family friendly event was held at the Ken Miller Recreation Center in Torrance, CA. While I have lived in Torrance for more than 40 years and I had been aware of the event, it took joining the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce to get me to finally attend one. I have to admit, I had a good time and it looked like everyone else did as well.

There were firefighters from a few different departments lending a hand as well as many additional volunteers. Several hundred people went through while we were there, so I am sure the event was a great success as far as raising funds for the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation. Continue reading
