Spaghetti Dinner to Benefit Lawrenceville Dog Run


Spaghetti Dinner to Benefit Lawrenceville Dog Run

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 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.
