If you live in Greece you've no doubt heard about the Rotary Club's annual ziti dinner that raises money for charity.

Sunday was the 36th Annual Italian Festa Ziti Dinner.

Rotary President Rick Antelli told News10NBC about 2,000 people came by on Sunday to eat. All the funds raised go to a number of local charities.

“We served over 2,000 people today and now we've raised a lot of money, over $50,000 dollars for the handicapped and different organizations that Rotary supports, not only as the Greece club, but Rotary International,” said Antelli.

In the last 36 years, the Greece Rotary has raised more than $700,000 from the ziti dinner.
