A steak fry sponsored by the Marcy Morreale Memorial to benefit the local community will take place Saturday at the Carroll Rod and Gun Club. The cost is $20 per person and includes steak, potato, salad, soft drink, draft beer, coffee and dessert. Kids meals are available for $5.
The Marcy Morreale Memorial Fund annually plans this steak fry to help contribute proceeds for Hospice-a nonprofit organization that helps people in the community who suffer from life-threatening illnesses. Not only does this event help such an amazing organization, it also helps to serve the financial needs of many local students. The Marcy Morreale Memorial Scholarship will assist graduates of Frewsburg Central School in June 2013. The Marcy Morreale Memorial Fund is proud to offer such a scholarship and hopes that by helping to continue their education, that they are making a difference in the world.
The steak fry will not only offer good food, but also a night of entertainment and fun. There will be karaoke music provided by Stray Cats. A silent auction will feature several prizes. A flat-screen TV will also be given away. There will also be a bake sale offering lots of treats.
"We truly appreciate and value this wonderful partnership with the Marcy Morreale Memorial Fund," said director of community relations Megan D'Angelo. "Through their efforts, many patients Hospice serves will find comfort in receiving the continued support that they need."
The Marcy Morreale Memorial Fund was set up in memory of Marcy Morreale - a local man who was very loved and cherished within the community. Hospice patient Marcy Morreale passed on - but left a beautiful legacy. When he was surrounded by Hospice staff in his last stages, it was Hospice who brought warmth, love and a smile to his final days of life. Because of this friendly hospitality, his daughter Michelle Morreale Anderson, along with other family members found such comfort in the services her father was being provided she wanted to share her dad's experience with other Hospice patients and their families. And so, the Morreale Memorial Fund was established. Every year since, Michelle Morreale Anderson has joined together with the community in an effort to raise both money and awareness for Hospice and other deserving organizations, continuing ongoing support in order to provide support to help those in need - all in the name of her father.
Tickets for the steak fry can be purchased at Terminal Collision and the Carroll Rod and Gun Club. To guarantee a dinner, purchase tickets today. T-shirts will be made available.
To place an order, please email Michelle Morreale Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org. These T-shirts are very special as they have the official logo on the back; all to commemorate Marcy's father all the while raising awareness of Hospice and of its exceptional services.
