Italian Dinner Benefits Teen in Need of Transplant
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A local church is serving up some authentic Italian cuisine this week to raise money for a church member in need of a kidney transplant.

The Men's Club at St. Paul Lutheran Church of Paducah is hosting a fundraiser Italian dinner Thursday from 4:30 to 7:00 pm at the church, located at the corner of 21st Street and Kentucky Avenue. Proceeds will fund a kidney transplant for Tyson Asher, a member of the church and a senior at McCracken County High School.

Men's Club member Mike Legendre says Tyson has kidney disease and the high cost of the transplant exceeds his family's insurance coverage.

“We found out recently that Tyson's mom, Jenny, is a match and they're gonna do the surgery in early October,” Legendre said.

Thursday night's menu includes spaghetti, home-made meatballs and sauce, garlic bread, salad, choice of desert and beverage. Dinners are $9 per person. Children under age 9 eat free when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Guests may eat in or take out orders.

To RSVP for large groups or for more information, call the church at (270) 442-8343.
