Raiders players join 2nd Annual Celebrities on Ice fundraiser

Celebrities on IceThis weekend, Downtown Racine Corporation (DRC) invites you to bundle up, get out of the house and visit three Downtown hot spots for a great cause. On Saturday, February 28, the DRC is hosting the 2nd Annual “Celebrities on Ice” fundraiser from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (and later)!

This is not an ice skating completion, but rather a unique fundraiser for the DRC. “Celebrity bartenders” will be stationed at great places like Reefpoint Brew House, Henry & Wanda’s and Dewey’s Restaurant and Pub, serving up cocktails…on ice. And this year, the Racine Raiders are involved! Each venue will have tons of fun, raffles and great entertainment, but members of Your Hometown Team will be at Dewey’s Restaurant and Sports Bar.

Stop by Dewey’s Restaurant and Sports Bar to meet members from your hometown team, the Racine Raiders, and visit with other local “celebrities” like Mean Jake, “Mr. Racine” Mark Eickhorst, Joe Mooney of Jean’s Jazz Series, and Matt Montemurro of Johnson Bank. Wear you Raiders gear and receive an entry into a drawing for a $50 Downtown Gift Certificate. Don’t forget to participate in the 50/50 raffles and get your photos taken with some of the Raiders players to help the cause!

The Reefpoint Brew House will have former Racine Park standout and Wisconsin Badgers running back Johnny Clay. Henry & Wanda’s will feature Elvis from All the King’s Men, Heidi Fannin, Anne Meredith, Jeff Coe and Devin Sutherland.

A portion of the event’s sales, plus your generous tips, will directly support the revitalization of downtown and support community events like St. Patrick’s Day and Holiday Parade, First Fridays, Public Art, Music on the Monument and Party on the Pavement.
