The 2020 Big E Dinner, catered by Centro Restaurant in downtown Des Moines on Monday, October 12th, was a huge success! In past years, the dinner was held at Chuck’s Restaurant and their support has been awesome. However, this year Chuck’s was not available due to massive renovations to the restaurant. George Formaro, 1986 EHS graduate and 2018 Hall of Fame recipient, graciously offered meals this year from Centro, one of his restaurants in the Des Moines area.
The Class of 1988 volunteered to help serve the to-go meals and raised approximately $1,000 to go towards their class’ scholarship fund for East High graduates.
Congratulations to the Class of 1988, a big thank you to George and Centro, and a HUGE thank you to all that purchased meals. Let’s hope that we can all get together, in person, next year to enjoy another great meal and raise money for our East High graduates.
