1.) Heart & Soul Dip Dinners
This event is Saturday, February 29th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Roosevelt Community Center in Charleston.
The Charleston Family Resource Center is hosting its 14th Annual Heart & Soul Dip Dinner, Saturday, February 29rd from 11 am – 2 pm at the Roosevelt Neighborhood Center located at 502 Ruffner Avenue in the former Roosevelt Junior High School Building.
During a brainstorming session in 2006 we thought that a “Dip Dinner” was a way to bring the community together while hosting a fund raiser. It was decided that the best time to hold this dinner would be at the end of February, about the time people are looking for something to do after the cold winter months. Since February is known for Valentine’s Day and Black History Month we named this event the Heart and Soul Dip Dinner.
You may be wondering “What is a Dip Dinner?” A Dip Dinner is simply an event where attendees purchase tickets for 50 cents each. They use the tickets to purchase a “Dip” or serving spoon portion of a side dish for 1 ticket. Entrees and Desserts range in price from 2 – 6 tickets. Beverages and take out boxes are 1 ticket. It is very similar to the “Taste of Charleston” only with good ole’ home-cooked soul and ethnic foods made with lots of love. Advance ticket vouchers may be purchased at our office Monday – Friday 12 noon – 2 pm.
