Tonight is the night for Holy Angels Famous Friday Fish Fry and the Gifts from the Heart Raffle. By Mike Sternig

March 17, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Tonight is the fabulous Holy Angels fish fry and the Gifts from the Heart Raffle.

Starting at 4 p.m., the Famous Friday Fish Fry will be served in the Walnut and Cedar Rooms. This annual event features the secret “Festival Recipe” (if you don’t get it now, you’ll have to wait for the Festival of Angels and the  l-o-o-ong lines on Friday night outside in the rain or blistering heat!).

Here’s the really exciting part…this year, the adult portion of fried fish will again be “all-you-care-to-eat” for $10, the children’s portion is $6 and children 4 & under are free (dine-in only). Family-style servings of fries, cole slaw or applesauce, rye bread, and homemade desserts are also included.

This year’s fish fry will again feature baked fish (like the Festival of Angels) with an adult portion for $10. Because of the popularity of the baked fish, we’ve continued to increase our order from last year!

For those family members who don’t care for fish, Pasta/Italian Bread will be available for $5.  Carry outs are also available for a quick in-and-out fish fry (enter through the gym)! This year’s fish fry will again offer a cash bar with beer, wine and soda. If you’ve been to the Famous Friday Fish Fry before, we know you’ll be back; if you’ve never tried it, you’re missing a real treat!

At 8 p.m., the festivities shift to the gym for the drawings of the winners in this year’s Gifts From The Heart Raffle. For $1 you can take a chance at winning YOUR CHOICE of over 100 unique items or services!  Among the items in this year’s offering…One semester tuition; Cash ($1125 – 2 Winners!); Two Colorado Condos; Sky Run Copper Mountain Getaway and Treehouse Condominiums in the Rocky Mountains; Packers tickets; a 50” Smart TV; 2 Ipad minis; Lego sets; a video streaming drone; gift cards to local stores; carpet cleaning; IT services; sporting events tickets; jewelry; and a whole lot more!

Simply come to the Holy Angels Gym to purchase your raffle tickets, neatly fill out your information on each one (or bring your address labels), place them in the buckets for your desired items. We suggest you get six raffle tickets for $5.  Again, you must to be present to win or you can designate someone you trust (like your friendly principal) to claim your prize for you.
