While the Pacific Beach Kiwanis Club has long been known for its Halloween-time apple sales fundraiser to benefit local school programs, that tradition will take on a new flavor this year, said club members.

The apple sales, which have been a fundraising staple for more than 40 years, have been bagged this year because of the small profit margin generated by the sales. Instead, club members have replaced the old fundraiser with a new Halloween-themed pasta dinner at Pernicano’s Pizza House.

As in past years, the money raised by the event will fund the Pacific Beach Kiwanis Club’s Youth Foundation, which supports the Mission Bay High School band, drama and sports activities.

The program also supports the Mission Bay High Key Club and the Builders Club at Pacific Beach Middle School, along with sponsorship of the Hope of America Awards for the five local elementary schools.

In addition, the Youth Foundation supports the Pacific Beach/Taylor Branch Library and Rady Childrens Hospital’s “Miracle Mile of Quarters” program.

The spooky mostaccioli dinner is set to take place Thursday, Oct. 25 from 4:30 to 10 p.m. at the restaurant, located at 711 Turquoise St. Dinner features meatballs, salad, roll, beverage, ghosts, goblins and ghouls.

For those who cannot make it the night of the dinner, Pernicano’s will honor tickets through the end of November. Ticket prices are $12 and may be used from Wednesdays through Sundays until the end of November. Make checks payable to P.B. Kiwanis Youth Foundation.
