LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Lawton Business Women Club is hoping to raise more than $8,000 on Monday in their annual Spaghetti Dinner. The organization has been selling tickets for a plate-full of spaghetti to raise money for scholarships for women going to Cameron University and Great Plains Technology Center. Since they have started this Spaghetti Dinner, they have given away $80,000 worth of scholarships.
Dr. Rose Lepeen, who has been selling tickets for weeks for her organization, says they do this to support local women.
"Especially the upcoming generation, to be entrepreneurs and to have support by women who have been successful in this community that are business women," said Dr. Lepeen. "That is what we have to do and that is our purpose."
The fundraiser starts at 11:30 in the morning on Monday and ends at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church on Southwest B Avenue. Tickets are $15 for adults, and $8 for children under 12.
