If you’re looking for a meaningful meal this week circle Thursday night on your calendar.

Jennifer Block, champion of the 45-49 age group at the Coeur d’Alene Ironman, will be at Mama Stortini’s at 3207 East Main Street in Puyallup, to celebrate the birthday of Ty Quandt.

Ty is turning 12 and is battling Niemann-Pick Disease. Block is racing in honor of Ty at the Ironman World Championships on Oct. 11 in Hawaii. The event will double as sendoff for Block, a Puyallup resident.

Proceeds from those eating dinner at Mama Stortini’s Ristorante between 4 and 9:30 p.m. on Thursday will go to the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation.

We’ll feature Block and fellow Puyallup Ironman Gary Tucci in the Oct. 5 News Tribune.
