Spaghetti Dinner to Benefit Lawrenceville Dog Run

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spaghetti Dinner to Benefit Lawrenceville Dog Run

Friday, October 4, 2013
Teamster Temple
4701 Butler Street

The Lawrenceville Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner returns to the neighborhood’s Teamster Temple on Friday, October 4, 2013, in celebration of the Bernard Dog Run’s official one-year anniversary.

In March of 2012, the Lawrenceville Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner helped generate the much-needed funding, along with support from Paint the Town, Lawrenceville United, Duquesne Light, and the City of Pittsburgh, to publicly open the gates to the Bernard Dog Run on October 4, 2012.

Located at the Lawrenceville Riverfront Trail and 40th Street Bridge, the Bernard Dog Run was named to honor the legacy of the late Jay Bernard — a Lawrenceville resident, entrepreneur, and abandoned dog advocate.

Bernard Dog Run -- Opened October 4, 2012

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. He founded The Boys of Lawrenceville and created its Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner fund-raiser in 2004 to benefit local families and organizations.

Now, the spaghetti dinner serves as an annual fund-raiser for the Bernard Dog Run initiative, started in 2008, to offset ongoing maintenance costs and to further improve the dog run.

This year’s dinner will be held at the Teamster Temple, 4701 Butler Street, from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and the evening will include a generous meal, silent auction, raffles, and music.

Advanced tickets are available at Espresso a Mano, Gallery on 43rd Street, and online for $12 per person. Tickets purchased at the door will be $15 per person, and children under the age of 10 eat free.

Volunteers and donations are needed to help support the continuation of this annual spaghetti dinner fund-raiser. For more information about the event, tickets, donations, and volunteer opportunities, please visit BernardDogRun.org/SpaghettiDinner.

Bernard Dog Run Becomes Reality

1 Comment Announcements, Events

After more than four years of work and support from the Lawrenceville community, the Bernard Dog Run is now open!

Ground broken on August 22 at Bernard Dog Run site

Located at the Lawrenceville Riverfront Trail and 40th Street Bridge, the Bernard Dog Run was named to honor the legacy of the late Jay Bernard — a Lawrenceville resident, entrepreneur and abandoned dog advocate.

With many successful community fundraising events over the years, including the recent Lawrenceville Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner held in March of 2012, the Bernard Dog Run initiative was able to clear the final major hurdle with the help of national radio personality Delilah Rene Luke and her Paint the Town charity!
