A special benefit at Katz 21 benefiting the Meals on Wheels program. The goal is to help get local elderly residents off a waiting list for the program.
Cristi Burrage, Chairperson of the Harvest Moon Ball, says,"Our goal is to get 160 seniors that are currently on the waiting list, off of the waiting list, for the holidays. The holidays are most important because you don't want anybody to feel lonely during the holidays and by providing them these hot meals everyday they definitely get taken care of and feel a little bit better."
The Harvest Moon Masquerade took place Saturday evening at Katz 21 Steak and Spirits. The free event featured a silent auction.
