SYRACUSE – Billy Fuccillo will match every dollar raised Saturday at a spaghetti supper to support the Assumption Church Food Pantry.
The food pantry in the North Salina Street church almost closed in December because it was having trouble raising enough money. Upon hearing the news, the Syracuse community and Fuccillo raised money to keep the pantry open. It serves 400 families a month.
“We are overjoyed with Mr. Fuccillo’s generosity, once again and for his gracious support of our ministry to the Northside,” said Nicholas Spano, Director of Assumption’s Food Pantry. “There is no way to adequately thank Mr. Fuccillo for his donations, but we hope he will accept our humble thanks and prayers for his goodness towards us.”
The supper is from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday in the church parish center at 812 N. Salina St. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children and will be available at the door. There will be a traditional Italian dinner, desserts, entertainment by Greg Hoover and Friends and a raffle.
