HICKORY, N.C. -- The Hickory Soup Kitchen is raising money for those in need throughout Catawba County.
They held their annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser Saturday afternoon. Guests paid for a ticket to eat and could leave donations.
Soup Kitchen staff says it has become a popular event over years and know it means a lot to those who benefit from the fundraiser.

Last year, the soup kitchen fed about 70,000.
