Duluth's Italian American Club was cooking up a storm on Sunday for their upcoming spaghetti dinner scholarship fundraiser.

Members rolled up about 2,000 meatballs to prepare for the dinner that will take place on Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the American Legion in West Duluth.

The members said their special spaghetti sauce recipe has been with the club for years, and they said the traditional experience is what draws in over 700 people every year.

“Well, I think it's that, and we have special spices we put in our meatballs. We give them a good portion of food. They can come back for seconds if they need to. The price is within reason $8 for adults and $4 for children,” Cook Jim Carroll said.

He said the proceeds help create three $1,500 scholarships for local students.
