The Lawrenceville Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner, sponsored by Lawrenceville United, is set for Friday, March 2, 2012, at the Teamster Temple in Lawrenceville. This annual fund-raising event will benefit the Bernard Dog Run, a community initiative to build an off-leash dog park for the residents of Lawrenceville.
Supported by Lawrenceville United and the City of Pittsburgh, the Bernard Dog Run’s final steps toward opening include raising funds to cover necessary site construction and maintenance.
The 2012 spaghetti dinner will be held at the Teamster Temple, 4701 Butler Street, from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and the evening will include entertainment, raffles and Italian music. Proceeds from the event will also benefit local nonprofit animal resource center, Animal Friends.
Advanced tickets are available at Espresso a Mano, Gallery on 43rd Street, Lawrenceville United and online for $11 per person. Tickets bought at the door will be $13 per person, and children under the age of 10 eat free.

About the Bernard Dog Run and Lawrenceville Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner
The Bernard Dog Run initiative started in 2008 with the sole mission of establishing a community off-leash dog park that is well-maintained, safe and enjoyable for the dogs and dog owners of Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood.
The initiative was named in honor of the late Jay Bernard–a Lawrenceville resident, entrepreneur and abandoned dog advocate. Mr. Bernard pioneered neighborhood involvement in Lawrenceville, serving as a catalyst for community activities including Art All Night, the Joy of Cookies Tour and the Lawrenceville House Tour.
Bernard founded The Boys of Lawrenceville and created its Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner fund-raiser in 2004 to benefit local families and organizations. In 2012, the dinner becomes the major annual fund-raiser for the Bernard Dog Run initiative.
