The Italian Extravaganza and Silent Auction takes place at Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) on Sunday, November 13, from 4–7 p.m. at the church’s Activities and Programs Center (A&P) in the former A&P building next to the church at 1315 E. Spring Street, New Albany.

Dinner includes salad, pasta dishes, bread, dessert, and drink. Proceeds benefit missions of the Christian Women’s Fellowship and Christian Men’s Fellowship, so every purchase goes toward making life better for someone in need.


Tickets are $10 for adults ($5 for children K–Grade 4; preschool and under are free) and may be purchased in advance or at the door.

For more information, call (812) 944-1736, or email CentralChristiancwf@yahoo.com

All silent auction items have been generously donated by local businesses and individuals. Please remember them when you purchase goods and services throughout the year!
