SPARTA — Sparta UNICO recently held its fourth Pasta and Comedy Night at the Sparta Ambulance Building. Guests were entertained by comedian and former TV celebrity Uncle Floyd Vivino. “The event was a huge success on all levels” said Sparta UNICO President Gary D’Uva. “The food was delicious, the comedy hysterical and more funds were raised tonight than at any of the previous three Pasta and Comedy Nights, therefore it was a huge success”. Event Chairperson Thomas Cifelli said, “The reason for the success was two-fold: First, using a name comedian this time like Uncle Floyd definitely helped to sell tickets. Secondly, we were very fortunate to have Ken Carafello, former chef and owner of The Gibson Girl and Carafello’s Restaurants in Sparta as our head chef this time. Kenny’s name helped sell tickets as well as taking the taste of the dinner up a notch. Proceeds from the event will help fund the scholarship, the Annual Sparta UNICO Easter Egg Hunt as well as other charitable causes.”
