CHS hosts spaghetti dinner fundraiser
The members of Ceres High's football and cheer programs waited on parents, family members, friends and coaches on Friday, Aug. 19 at the First Annual Spaghetti Feed.

The meet-and-greet fundraiser was held inside the Student Lounge at 6 p.m.

More than 350 tickets were sold. Cost was $5 per person.

"Everything was donated," Bulldogs varsity head coach Bret Durossette said. "We had enough food for 400 people. It was a huge undertaking."

Food-4-Less donated 70 pounds of noodles, 30 pounds of hamburger, 15 pounds of Italian sausage, 40 loafs of garlic bread and nine gallons of spaghetti sauce.

Ceres Lions Club members cooked.

Valley Printing provided place mats for 56 tables.

"We had a lot of help," Durossette said.

"It's a great turnout," Food-4-Less Store Manager Corey Crawford said. "We had to pick up some more stuff."

Varsity football lineman Jesse Hidahl talked about the importance of the fundraiser.

"We're all working together to serve the fans," he said. "It's a very special thing. We've never done anything like this before."

Ceres High's first home game will be staged on Sept 9. The Bulldogs will face the Downey Knights.

"Come watch us play," Durossette said while addressing the crowd. We're going to win. I can guarantee that."
