Fundraiser at Widmer Gasthaus for Loaves and Fishes

Fans of Widmer Brewing and the Widmer Gasthaus can spend an enjoyable evening out while helping to feed homebound seniors at the same time.

From 4 until 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20, half of all proceeds earned at the Widmer Gasthaus will go to support the Martin Luther King, Jr. Loaves & Fishes Center. Patrons are encouraged to come early or after the dinner hour to ensure that the restaurant raises as many funds as possible. Parties of five or more are asked to call ahead and make a reservation.
