Centro in Des Moines will be providing the meals for the Big E Dinner this year, due to extensive renovations happening at Chuck’s Restaurant. Chuck’s has been very supportive over the years for our scholarship fund raising so we thank them. George Formaro, an EHS alum, has graciously offered meals this year from Centro, one of his restaurants in the Des Moines area.
This year’s event, scheduled for Monday, October 12th with pickup from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m., is sponsored by the EHS Class of 1988. Proceeds from the event will go towards their class reunion scholarship fund. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meals will be “to-go” only and picked up in front of South Union Bread Cafe next door to Centro, 1003 Locust Street, Des Moines. In order to fill the orders, all orders and ticket purchases must be made by Friday, October 9th at 6 p.m. Prepayment is required for the meals. Beverages may be pre-paid or when you pickup your order.
Meal tickets are $30. The menu includes your choice of Sausage & Cheese Lasagne or Manicotti Flourentine (vegetarian). Each meal is served with a petite Centro salad and South Union Bakery focaccia.
Centro is also offering Beverage add-ons “to-go” including Limoncello, bottled beer and wine. Beverage details and costs are on the online order form and will be charged at the time of ticket purchase. Or you can also purchase your beverages at the time of pickup.
We will miss the opportunity to spend time together sharing stories as we have done in the past, like hanging out with John Kelly and Tom Hockensmith at the bar in Chuck’s (see photo below). But thanks to the efforts of our foundation members and George Formaro, we are able to continue this fun tradition and help raise funds for the EHS Alumni Foundation scholarship program. Please share the event with your family and friends.
PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS HERE! Thank you for your support.
