BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If you like great homemade Italian food, the place to be on Sunday is St. Leo’s Church. Favorites like spaghetti and meatballs are on the menu for a big fundraiser.
Ron Matz has more on this delicious event in Little Italy.
They’re busy in the kitchen at St. Leo’s church filling the cannolis, making the memorable meatballs and ravioli. Sunday all roads lead to the church and their big fundraising dinner.
“We have dine in or carryout. Ravioli dinner comes with one meatball. A spaghetti dinner has two meatballs,” volunteer Jerry Elliot said. “Our carryout costs $12.50.”
Whether you eat in or take out, the food is all homemade.
They’ll make 12,000 raviolis.
“We have about 80 volunteers who make the raviolis,” volunteer Sue Corasaniti said.
Elliot has been volunteering for 25 years.
“It’s amazing when we open up for that dinner we have so many volunteers who just show up. That’s St. Leo’s Church and I guess that’s why I keep coming back,” he said.
The cannolis are fabulous and they will sell hundreds of them here on Sunday — and all of them are donated.
“Sunday is one of the four major fundraisers of the year for St. Leo’s. It keeps us going,” Corasaniti said.
A delicious Sunday in Baltimore.
The dinner is from noon to 6 p.m. It’s $12 for adults and $6 for children.
