Carly Shoemaker spaghetti benefit a success

LOCK HAVEN – The second annual spaghetti dinner for Carly Shoemaker, a five-year-old girl diagnosed with Rhett Syndrome in 2010, was a success thanks to those who organized, participated and donated time and money.

More than $400 was raised to give to the family to help with the reconstruction of their home to help Carly on a daily basis.

This year’s committee included Lock Haven University students: Neal Strausser (Kappa Delta Rho), chair; Logan White (Alpha Sigma Phi), vice president of the Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC); and Matt Laity (Kappa Delta Rho) along with 60 other fraternity brothers who served more than 100 people a dinner, provided by Aramark.

“Serving and handing out the drinks and dessert was pretty awesome” stated Kyle Harris (Kappa Delta Rho). “We had a lot of motivation.”

“It just feels right to help someone and it was even more special that Carly was there to join us this year,” Colton Weichman, president of IFC said.

Dawn and Frank Shoemaker, Carly’s parents, were delighted and humbled by the work the fraternities were willing to do to help out their family.
