Michael’s Restaurant in Highland to host St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser

Michael’s Restaurant in Highland will host its 46th annual St. Patrick’s Day Benefit on Thursday, March 17. This year, the event will benefit the Highland Quarterback Club and Highland American Legion Baseball.

Doors will open at 11 a.m., and lunch — a traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage — will be served at noon.

“Let our delectable, traditional Irish spread fill you up while you enjoy bidding on auction items. We have alternative menu items available, if requested in advance,” said Gaye Michael, event chairman.

An oral auction will immediately follow lunch. Silent auction items will be displayed until 12:30. Auction items include a weekend stay at a condo on the Lake of the Ozarks, St. Louis Cardinals tickets, and many more great items.

The success of this event is a collaborative effort among volunteers, community leaders and business owners.

“Community support is greatly appreciated and necessary to make this event successful, as in years past. So, we cordially invite you to come out and celebrate with the Michael family at the 46th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Benefit for a better community,” Michael said.

Tickets are $25 per person. To purchase tickets or donate and item to the auction, call Wayne Wirz at 654-8419 or Gaye or Susie Michael at 654-8678. You can also purchase tickets by calling Rick Bellm at (618) 580-9021. Extra tickets will be available at the restaurant. Call Michael’s Restaurant to reserve a table.
