'Celebrate Life from the Heart' Friday in Vergas

This Friday, Feb. 11, the Vergas Community Center will be transformed into a world of hearts, flowers and tasty treats, as the Vergas-Dent "Loon-A-Tics" Relay for Life Team presents "Celebrate Life from the Heart," a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Chef Josh Hanson of Spanky's Stone Hearth will be preparing a mouth-watering dinner of Caesar salad (in a Parmesan bowl), prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus, topped off with a dessert of fresh berries in Russian cream.

The dinner will be served at 7 p.m.

There will also be a variety of tempting hors d'oeuvres to tickle the tastebuds during the social hour, which starts at 6 p.m.

A cash bar will also be available.

Detroit Lakes' own Rick Kratzke will keep dinner guests entertained with his music, and there will be raffles and drawings held throughout the evening.

Tickets are available at the Vergas State Bank; cost is $45 per person.

All proceeds after expenses will go to the American Cancer Society.

Limited seating is available, so be sure to get in touch with Jane, Kathy or Michelle at 218-342-2481 as soon as possible.
