Tickets on sale for first Richland County Children Services Spaghetti Bowl

Oct. 10, 2014

Tickets are now on sale for the first “Richland County Children Services Spaghetti Bowl,” a charity pasta dinner scheduled during the week of the annual Mansfield Senior-Madison football clash.

The dinner will be on Monday, Oct. 27, at Mansfield Senior High School’s cafeteria. Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Richland County and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The game will be on Friday, Oct. 31, at the new Ram Field at StarTek Stadium. It’s the last regular-season game of the 2014 campaign.

Tickets may be purchased at Wendy’s restaurants at 1145 Ashland Road in Madison Township and 1372 Lexington Ave. in Mansfield. Tickets will also be sold at the United Way of Richland County offices at 35 Park St. North.

Doors to the dinner will open at 6 p.m. Tickets will be $7 in advance and at the door. Children 6 and under may attend for free.

On the field after the game, a “Spaghetti Bowl” championship trophy will be presented to the winning team, along with checks for the charities, both of whom were chosen by the schools.

Mansfield Senior selected the United Way of Richland County and Madison picked the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The winning team’s charity will receive a check worth 75 percent of the dinner/t-shirt proceeds. The losing team’s charity will receive a check worth 25 percent of the proceeds.

On the night of the dinner, members of the two teams and coaching staffs will arrive around 7 p.m., depending on their practice schedules. A short program will be held around 7:30 p.m., featuring remarks by the head coaches of the two teams — Sean Conway of Madison and Chioke Bradley of Mansfield Senior, as well as players who competed in the annual cross-town rivalry over the years.

The dinner is scheduled to conclude between 8 and 8:15 p.m.
