Dorf Haus Thanksgiving Buffet Fundraiser to Support Pancreatic Cancer Research and Awareness
The Maier family, owners of the Dorf Haus Supper Club, Roxbury, near Sauk City, will serve up an extensive Thanksgiving buffet with 15 per cent of the proceeds to support The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. (PANCAN). The fourteenth anniversary of the fundraiser is in memory of Betty Maier, who co-founded the Dorf Haus 62 years ago, with her late husband, Vern.
Rebecca Maier-Frey, one of the Maier’s nine children and an active partner in managing the Dorf Haus said many Thanksgiving guests who annually attend the fundraiser knew Betty Maier who, back in 1990, decided to serve Thanksgiving buffet at the Dorf Haus Supper Club because she was already cooking for a large family and relatives. Funds raised at the Thanksgiving buffet help recruit the brightest scientists with the most innovative ideas so the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can work toward a cure by funding research, educating patients and caregivers, and supporting advocacy efforts. The Thanksgiving feast, served from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., is $23 for adults; $10 for ages 5-12 years old and $4 for children four and under. The buffet includes roast turkey, baked ham, chicken, mashed potatoes, homemade dressing, sweet potatoes, glazed carrots, peppered corn, cranberries, mixed salad, rolls. pumpkin pie and ice cream. Reservations are required at (608) 643-3980. www.foodspot.com/dorfhaus.
