Family Fun Night at Rolly Pollies- Supporting Leukemia/Lymphoma Research



Friday, October 10 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Rolly Pollies is proud to host a "Family Fun Night/Open Gym to Support Leukemia and Lymphoma Research" on Friday, October 10 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.

Families with young children (under age 8) can come and play in the gym for ½ hour increments for a family donation of $5 per ½ hour. In order to keep the event enjoyable and safe for all, we ask that you call Rolly Pollies at 704-660-8011 to reserve a time slot. Please tell all your friends about this fun family night event!

Staff members working this evening are doing so voluntarily, so that all monies collected will be donated to "The Capital Crusaders", a group of friends and family members walking in memory of Diane Dickinson Herbst, in the Light-The-Night walk in Washington, DC on October 18th.

Diane was a beloved wife, a fun-loving mother to two young daughters, a compassionate pediatric nurse and an exceptional friend to many. Please join us for a celebration of life at Rolly Pollies while providing your support to individuals fighting blood-related cancers and to honor the lives taken by these perplexing illnesses.

Don't miss the fun!

Remember "Together we can make a difference"

Easy Chicken Pasta

What's For Supper Ya'll?

White Beans, Pasta and Chicken
8 ounces dried cavatappi, fusilli, rotini, ditaloni, or other short pasta tubes
1 15- to 19-ounce can cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
12 ounces cooked chicken, shredded
1/4 cup snipped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley sprigs (optional - I usually skip it)
Olive oil (optional - but I recommend at least a little for moisture)
Directions
1. In a large saucepan, cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and set aside.
2. In a blender or food processor, combine 3/4 cup of the beans and the chicken broth. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Place bean puree in pan used for cooking the pasta; bring to boiling. Return pasta to pan.
3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon hot olive oil for 1 minute. Add tomatoes; cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining beans, shredded chicken, snipped parsley, pepper and salt. Heat through.
4. Add the tomato mixture to hot pasta; toss to cost. Top with parsley sprigs and additional olive oil. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
