American Legion Post 42 will host a homemade pasta dinner from 5-8 p.m. on June 22 to raise travel expenses for disabled veterans competing this summer at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games.  The Post is located between Central and Lincoln streets immediately west of the CTA tracks.

For a $10 donation, guests at Post 42’s meeting hall, located next to the CTA Purple Line at 1030 Central St., will enjoy pasta “al dente” with meatballs and sauce, plus salad, garlic bread, soft drinks and coffee. Kids under 6 eat free.

Proceeds will help send a multi-sport team of wheelchair-bound area veterans, including many receiving care at the North Chicago VA Hospital, to the 33rd annual Wheelchair Games to be held July 13-18 in Tampa, Fla.

Co-sponsored by the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs and the Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Wheelchair Games include archery, basketball, bowling, field events, hand-cycling, a motorized wheelchair rally, nine-ball, power soccer, quad rugby, slalom, softball, swimming, table tennis, track, trapshooting and weightlifting.  Athletes compete against others their age with similar athletic ability and competitive experience.

Guests can pay at the door, but anyone can send a contribution to American Legion Post 42, Box 42, Evanston, IL 60204. More information is available by calling the Post at 847-475-9076.
