Iowa Lakes Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant, And Surgical Technology Students Hold Pasta Of The Prairie Fundraiser

(Spencer, Iowa) Iowa Lakes students from the Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant and Surgical Technology programs on the Spencer Campus are hosting a Pasta of the Prairie Fundraiser. This fundraiser will help support the Iowa Lakes Student Food Pantry on the Spencer Campus and to help defray travel costs for students to attend various conferences.

Students will be selling soups, salads and pasta dishes from Pasta of the Prairie for $8 per item, with forty percent of the proceeds to be donated back to the program’s fundraiser.

“We are excited to partner with Pasta of the Prairie for a fundraiser that has never been offered before! Student fundraising is crucial to some of the extracurricular learning opportunities offered to our students that are not covered by tuition,” said Dana Grafft, Surgical Technology Program Coordinator. “Funds raised will allow our students to attend learning experiences off-campus, as well as exposure to professional networking opportunities that align with their major. We feel like this is a win-win for a newer, local company, as well as our students.”
