Fundraising, Food, and Friends: SHS’s Student Government Holds the Fifth Annual Community Dinner

Students sing karaoke for the community dinner attendees.

On November 6th, the SHS student government’s fifth annual community dinner occurred. This popular event is aimed at bringing the Scarsdale community together to raise money for a selected charity. This year’s choice was Bread of Life, an organization that provides food, clothing, and other assistance throughout Westchester County, and over $9000 was raised just through ticket sales. There was food from three local restaurants, musical entertainment provided by the Tri-M club, and activities provided by the student government.

Food was served from Jade Spoon, Giannoni’s, and Pizzarelli’s. In addition, desserts were donated by community members. The spread included but was not limited to pizza, sandwiches, chicken fingers, pasta, and fried rice. “I thought the food was amazing. There was something for everyone,” Katie Kendall ’26 remarked.

Tri-M, an SHS club focused on bringing SHS musicians together and spreading their love for music, provided music and karaoke for the community dinner attendees. “I think my favorite part of the community dinner was the Karaoke,” Kendall added. “The musical entertainment was engaging, fun, and energetic.”

Student government was in charge of providing activities for the event. Activities included cookie decorating, coloring, friendship bracelet making, and glitter tattoos. Many of the young children enjoyed decorating their cookies, and the glitter tattoos appeared very popular among the older audience. “I think the activities provided by the class government were still perfect for the young kids,” Kendall commented.

The community dinner is held yearly “to bring the entire community together and to raise money for charity,” school government advisor Benjamin Sawyer explained. Sawyer’s favorite part is to “see everyone having fun and enjoying themselves.”

After all, there’s nothing better than supporting a local charity by having a good time and eating a delicious meal!
