Pasta Dinner

Friday, May 18, 2018

The beloved annual Henry Ford Elementary Pasta Dinner is our PTA’s largest fundraiser; proceeds enable our organization to keep working through the year. Held each May on our school campus, this event brings the school and Woodside Plaza neighborhood together for food & fun.  Highlights include delicious pasta, auction, raffle, baskets, carnival games, and a visit by the Stanford Band.

Our Pasta Dinner is open to the entire Redwood City and surrounding communities. Winners need not be present to win, but we encourage you to come join the fun!
