Spaghetti feed draws in cash and hungry patrons

COQUILLE, Ore.-- Call it a spicy meatball for the wallet of Coos County 4H clubs.

Dozens of people filled the large auditorium of the Coquille Community Center last Saturday to give local children a boost in fundraising.

In addition to desserts and pasta, money raised from a silent auction also helped out. All of the items sold were donated by local businesses.

KCBY News spoke to some of the young volunteers.

"I like that we can be a team and just have fun," Haila Short, 4H member, said.

"We went around to different businesses and we had them pitch in some stuff like clothing stores they pitched in some clothing, and other stores they just gave gift certificates and stuff like that," said Jessica Ross, 4H member, said.

The money raised will be distributed among the multiple 4H chapters in the county, and each club will use their share as they see fit.

Every year the event raises nearly $7,000.
