The Springfield Restaurant Group is preparing for their third annual
charitable event to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. "A Taste of
Springfield's" will be held on Monday, September 9, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm
at the Springfield Grille in Mercer, Pennsylvania. This event is a
buffet-style dinner that features creations from all six restaurants in the
Springfield Rest. Group. The price per ticket is $50.00 which includes
dinner, dessert, entertainment, a firework show and door prize drawings.
Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on prizes in a live auction.
All proceeds for "A Taste of Springfield's", including any tips the
employees make during the evening, will be donated to the Make-A-Wish
Foundation of Western Pennsylvania. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non
profit organization that grants wishes to children under the age of 18 with
life threatening illnesses. Last year, "A Taste of Springfield's" raised a
total of $42,000.00 which was divided between the Make-A-Wish Foundation and
the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Tickets for "A Taste of
Springfield's" are on sale now at all six restaurant locations as well as at
the Springfield Restaurant Group's Corporate Office. The Springfield
Restaurant Group was established in 1979. It is comprised of the Iron
Bridge Inn and Rachel's Roadhouse, both of Mercer, PA; the Log Cabin Inn of
Harmony, PA; the Springfield Grille located in Mercer, PA and Boardman, OH;
and the Hickory Bar & Grille of Hermitage, PA.
