Mike Orazzi/The Bristol Press BRISTOL &mdash Animal Rescue Foundation’s annual pasta dinner has become a tradition for Arlene Bouchard and some of her co-workers. “We come here every year,” she said. “It’s fun. They have good food.” About 420 tickets were sold for the eighth annual dinner, which is ARF’s largest fund-raiser. The event was held at Nuchie’s restaurant in Forestville Thursday night where the traditional ziti dinner was served.. Dozens of area businesses donated gift certificates for the raffle. There were also a variety of creative gift baskets, which were lined up on a long table at the front of the room. The tea basket held a tea pot, cups, boxes of tea, cookies and jam. There were baskets of toys and treats for dogs and cats, movies and books for youngsters and even a basket for creme brulee fans. For the men there was a tool bag, a bucket filled with car wash necessities and the NASCAR basket, complete with beer, pretzels and auto racing DVDs. For those who don’t want a gift basket, a 50-50 raffle was held. A semi-regular blog about the news and events in Bristol, Connecticut.
