As this publication was in the final production stages, we received word that the Dignity/Columbus (OH) Traveling Dinner Fundraiser held Saturday evening, October 21, 2006, netted $2,700, of which $1,000 was a gift from a couple as new contributors. The goal for the event was $1,500.

Five households prepared a portion of the dinner. Guests moved from house to house to each of the hosting households.

Congratulations and thanks to the organizers, hosts and guests for the successful event and funds donated to DignityUSA.

Guests included friends from Dignity/Dayton (OH) who drove to lend their support..
The event sponsors suggest the traveling dinner by multiple hosts and hostesses as an alternative to a single house party.

The event coordinators report that a fun evening was had by all.
