Kiwanis Club readies annual charitable Feast

What could be better than sampling a smorgasbord of dishes from 20 local eateries? Doing it for a good cause.

The Kiwanis Club of Greater Lawrence is holding its 16th annual Fabulous Feast on Wednesday, April 30, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Wyndham Andover Hotel, 123 Old River Road, Andover. Restaurants, caterers and other food establishments from the Merrimack Valley will be offering up a generous sampling of their cuisine for the event, which also will feature silent and live auctions.

This year, the Kiwanis Club will honor two men at the Fabulous Feast:

Enzo S. Fossella, the founder of the Service Club of Andover and owner of Enzo of Andover.

Brother Rene Roy, the campus minister of Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, who was a missionary in Rwanda and at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

The evening will open with cocktails, a raffle and silent auction starting at 5:30 p.m. The food sampling as well as live auction and celebration of the two honorees will get started at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $45 each if purchased before April 17 or $400 for a table of 10 and can be ordered online at

The local Kiwanis Club is a nonprofit organization that supports charitable endeavors for children in the Greater Lawrence area. Members meet for lunch every Thursday at 12:15 p.m. at the Lanam Club in Andover. Anyone interested in learning more about or joining the club is always welcome to attend.
