Guests should enter through Door 1 or 20. Dinner will include spaghetti, salad, garlic bread, dessert, and drink. Cost is $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens and students, $5 for children, and includes admission into the Oshkosh North vs. Kaukauna boys’ basketball game (7:15 p.m. start time). Open to the public, all are invited to attend. Tickets are available at the door or can be purchased in advance by contacting the Communities program at 920.379.7458 or [email protected]


Each year, the Communities’ spaghetti dinner fundraiser benefits an issue, selected by the program and embraced by students in order to raise awareness and financial support. This year, the fundraiser will benefit INARA, a non-profit organization that provides life-altering medical care for children from conflict areas who have catastrophic injuries or illnesses and are unable to access treatment due to war. The Communities program recently launched its #childrenofwar project and students have been learning about INARA and its humanitarian impact. To learn more about INARA, visit
