Havelock chapter No. 26 of the Disabled American Veterans has scheduled its annual dinner and dance fundraiser for 6 p.m. Saturday at the Havelock Senior Center.
Individual tickets are $15 each and can be purchased from any DAV chapter member or at the Havelock Senior Center.
The dinner menu features spaghetti and breadsticks provided by Olive Garden and side dishes from other local restaurants.
Sponsorships for the event are also available. Sponsorship levels vary from a $100 bronze sponsorship, $200 silver sponsorship, $500 gold sponsorship or $1,000 platinum sponsorship.
The DAV is also accepting donations from businesses and individuals for door prizes.
The dinner/dance is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. The Havelock High School Jazz Band will be providing dinner music, with a D.J. providing dance music afterward.
Ninety percent of the money raised from the event goes to support DAV services to Craven and Carteret county veterans, including assistance with Veterans Affairs claims, financial assistance grants for food, utilities or rent, and referrals to local support resources, with the other 10 percent going to the North Carolina DAV to support state transportation and shelter programs.
The Havelock Senior Center is located at 103 Trader Ave.
