Cioppino dinner benefits military programs

The Gardnerville Knights of Columbus are selling tickets for their mid-winter fabulous feast featuring either a cioppino or prime rib dinner.

Tickets for the Feb. 16 feast are $30 per person and can be purchased at the St. Gall Catholic Church office, or after most weekend masses until Feb. 11.

“The proceeds from this fundraiser supports our men and women in the military, veterans, and related programs,” organizers said in a press release. “Over $4000 was donated from last year’s dinner proceeds.”

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Pastoral Center of the church with a no-host bar serving cocktails, wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages.

Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. starting with a basque salad. Cioppino, a seafood stew, includes shrimp, crab, clams, and white fish in a special Italian spiced tomato sauce, will be served with french bread. The prime rib dinner includes potatoes and vegetables. A sherbet dessert and coffee or tea completes either dinner selection.
