SAN ANTONIO – Nearly 7,000 plates were served and almost $70,000 was raised in support of families of injured and fallen first responders at the 20th annual Spaghetti Dinner.

The 100 Club of San Antonio, which hosted the dinner, said it broke a record, serving nearly 1,000 more plates at this year's dinner than last year's.

The dinner, which is a special event for survivor families, allows the 100 Club of San Antonio to continue partnering with local nonprofits and organizations to provide coping and counseling skills and mental health awareness for first responders and their families.

Money raised at the dinner will also fund a program started last year, the 100 Club Training Scholarship Program, for active law enforcement officers, which provides additional skills in the field to get them home safe to their families. Those skills include tactical first-aid training, defensive tactics, verbal de-escalation skills and more.

The 100 Club of San Antonio expressed its gratitude to the city and Bexar County for another record-breaking year.
