These happy kids are pictured after last year’s pasta dinner with the big check representing what that event collected for the Jimmy Fund: almost $2,000! Most of them, with many others, will be riding their bikes in another PMC Kids’ Ride next year.

No, it’s not a new health diet, but if you come and enjoy the pasta dinner being put on by Suffield’s PMC Kids, you’ll help them meet their goal for a big donation to the Jimmy Fund of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for fighting cancer. These enthusiastic kids, who ride their bikes in the PMC Kids’ Challenge each year, work all year long to collect donations for their cause. They’re approaching $60,000 this year and $250,000 for the seven year history of Kids’ Rides in Suffield.

The delicious pasta dinner includes meatballs, salad, coffee, and always a delicious dessert. Gluten-free options will be available, along with convenient take-out. And a friendly DJ will provide good music to dine by. (See if you can challenge him with your requests.)

It’s a nice opportunity to enjoy a fine dinner for an important cause, with a good possibility of sharing some enjoyable conversation with an old friend you haven’t seen for a while. There will be raffle prizes, as always. November 10, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the First Congregational Church on High Street across from the Green. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for kids and children under five are free.
