Pasta & Prevention

Eat pasta, stop a bully.

An Anti-Bullying Dinner will be held this Saturday, April 25 in Holly Springs, to raise awareness of the issue and raise funds for the Mayor’s Anti-Bully Committee.

Formed in early 2014, the committee led by Mayor Richard “Dick” Sears, works to offer tools for kids and parents in Holly Springs to stop bullying where ever they see it, while teaching respect, acceptance and compassion.

The authentic Italian dinner, created by Chef Tony Perna, features a menu of penne pasta with homemade Italian sauce, meatballs, sausage, salad, Italian bread, sweet tea, coffee and cake.

Raffle and door prizes will be awarded.

The dinner is set for Saturday from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the W.E. Hunt Recreation Center Cafeteria, 301 Stinson Ave., Holly Springs. 

Proceeds will be used to continue efforts to effectively prevent and respond to bullying, and to help the campaign purchase literature, hold events, and supply awareness ribbons, stickers and bracelets.

Tickets for adults and children 12 and older are $15; tickets for kids under 12 are $10, and children under 3 are admitted free. For tickets, call Tony at (919) 522-2349 or email
