Spaghetti Feed with Reggae Band (Blazeen) Ramey White Fundraiser

Ramey White graduated from Santa Cruz High School in 1993. His family has gone through great hardship since he was stricken with GBS (Guillian-Barre Syndrome) in late January this year leaving him unable to work or take care of himself and his family. The disease needs to run its course, so his recovery will take anywhere from 1-3 years. A group of neighbors have come together to plan a big fundraiser for this family.

Date: Saturday July 18th
Time: 4-8pm
Place: Boulder Creek Rec Center (behind fire dept)
Cost: $15 adult, $7 kids (or less in advance)
We encourage tickets to be purchased in advance; you'll save money and help us plan! =)

We have put together a facebook page for this event:
Please share it with your fellow alumni!

We also need volunteer help for serving the food. If interested please sign up here:
*All volunteers will receive a free meal as a token of appreciation.*

For your reference, here are articles about Ramey White's situation:

The Spaghetti Feed is sponsored in part by Beauregard Vinyards, The Mountain Mechanic, the Santa Cruz Pasta Factory, and Chardonnay Charters.

The silent auction event of the year will be featured! What do Salvador Dali, Joe Montana and Miles Davis have in common? All will be up for auction at the extravaganza that night. The auction will be unlike any other auctions you may have experienced. Featured items will include exquisite, limited edition artwork (think Dali, Picasso, Chagall and many lesser known, but equally original artists), signed sports and entertainment collectibles (Montana, Mays, Ruth...need we say more!), fabulous designer jewelry and ladies accessories, unique home décor, exotic getaways and much more. Come join us for a great evening of auctions, libations, food & fun!
