Bemus Point Study Club To Host ‘Spaghetti Idol’

Sometimes the only thing better than a plate of spaghetti is eight plates of spaghetti.

On Sunday, the Bemus Point Study Club will be hosting it second annual Spaghetti Idol contest, which will feature homemade sauces from eight local men all hoping to claim the title of Spaghetti Idol.

“All guests will have the opportunity to and are encouraged to try all of the sauces, as the $5 admission fee includes all the spaghetti you can eat,” said Bebe Johnson, member of the study club. “We’ll have guests vote on what sauce they liked the best, and at the end of the event the winner will be announced.”

Participants for this year’s event are: David Graham, Bill Soffel, Luke Andriaccio, Dan Vogan, Craig Breter, Ryan Kelley, Bob Gustafson and Ron Mavity.

The Bemus Point Study Group, which was established in 1903 by Elizabeth Bemus, focuses on raising money for the Bemus Point Library.

“We have fundraisers throughout the year,” said Johnson. “We hold a book sale in the summer and we have tea at the Lenhart Hotel in June with a guest speaker to raise money, and we also giveaway a hand-painted rocking chair once a year as well.”

In addition to all-you-can-eat spaghetti, the event will also offer bread, salad, and drinks and deserts for an additional small price. There will also a basket giveaway and a 50/50 drawing in which guests are eligible to participate.

“It’s a fantastic dinner for $5,” said Johnson. “It’s all-you-can-eat, so come hungry and you’ll be sure to get your money’s worth.”

There is no pre-sale for the event, so tickets will be available at the door. The event will be held at Shaggy’s at the See Zurh House at 14 Main St. in Bemus Point.
