— A successful charity event yields many things — a gratification of efforts well-purposed by the committee, satisfaction from the attendees and participants, and in the end, the reward of a donation to the recipient. Such was the case for the Sparta Chapter of UNICO National for their Pasta Comedy Night.

Thanks to the member participation, community attendees and business donations of Tricky-Tray items, the Chapter presented a check for $10,150 to Melanie Russo for her expenses and fight against Osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer.

UNICO works hard to make this and other charities glad to be part of our family circle, and continues this year with scholarships and events built to help people in need in Sussex County. If you are of Italian decent and would like to help our organization, please see our contact information:

Mail: Sparta UNICO PO Box 328 Sparta, NJ 07871

Thanks to all those who made our Pasta Comedy Night a success. "Service Above Self!"
