For the second year, Waterfall Arts board members and volunteers have organized Pastabilities 2.0, a benefit dinner with musical entertainment, raffle and silent auction. This year’s event will take place Monday, March 1 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at 96 Main St., home of Chase’s Daily and Perimeter Gallery.

Local “celebrity chefs” Ted LaFage, Joe Ascrizzi, Blaine Richardson, Karen MacDonald and Frank Carozza, with the help of Waldo County Technical College culinary students, are creating special pasta dishes to go with salad, breadsticks, beverages and dessert.

Tickets at the door will be $15 for adults and $5 for children younger than 12. The proceeds will benefit Waterfall Arts programs including the upcoming “Rangeways” sculptural installations at Belfast’s public bay access points.

Live music will be provided by a trio of Belfast Area High School students. Many local businesses have donated items and services for the silent auction and the premium Belfast Getaway raffle. Bid cards and raffle tickets can be picked up during the dinner.

All are welcome to share a meal, music and friendship while celebrating Belfast’s generous, creative community. For more information call 338-2222 or visit
