And Support a Good Cause too!
Tuesday –February 28, 2012
Digger O’Dell’s Restaurant in Riverhead On Tuesday, February 28, the eighth annual fundraiser for Cornell University’s Long Island
Horticulture Research & Extension Center (LIHREC) in Riverhead will be held to support horticultural research.
Digger O’Dell’s Irish Pub at 58 W. Main St. in Riverhead will give the LIHREC all of the income that is collected from the meals that they serve that night. Digger’s has been involved with the agricultural industry on Long Island for many years, knows the struggles of the farmer, and understands the importance of Cornell University’s local presence. They are pleased to be able to support the Long Island agricultural community with this activity.
The Long Island Farm Bureau, Cornell University, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County are all supporting this endeavor.
There will be a large buffet dinner, including dessert, served for $20 per
person from 6 pm – 9 pm. (Reservations are not taken.) The bar will remain open until midnight. “Celebrity Bartenders” from the horticultural industry will be donating their time to entertain the diners, assist the bartenders, and encourage a great time!
Take your family to Digger’s Restaurant for dinner on Tuesday, February 28, and enjoy the fellowship of your fellow agriculturalists, Horticulturists, and wine makers while supporting science and research. You’ll have a great time! Call 727-3595 if you have any questions.
