Are you ready for the inaugural weekly dinner fundraiser?

We here at the Merou Grotto are VERY excited for our first of what we hope will be many, many weeks of dinner fundraisers at our location. These fundraiser dinners are fully open to the public and reservations, while appreciated, are not required.

Edward has been very busy preparing an excellent menu each week for our diners, in addition to working on creating a children’s menu for these weekly dinners as well.

As a reminder, each weekly meal will consist of a salad, entree, dessert, dinner roll (or bread), & non-alcoholic beverage for $10 +tax, and 10% of all income at the Merou Grotto goes directly to the Humanitarian Foundation to provide dental work for special needs children.

The inaugural meal  on Friday, January 16th, 2015, will consist of Swiss Steak in a red wine sauce served with garlic mashed potatoes and a California Blend of Vegetables (Carrots, Broccoli, & Cauliflower).

For more information on these weekly dinners or the Merou Grotto, please contact our Food & Beverage Director, Dr. Edward G. Mc Keown at 765-463-2621 (He is also the Merou Grotto Secretary, Director of Public Relations, and Event Coordinator).

Request for auction donations

If you read the post about upcoming charity work at the Merou Grotto, you might have noticed that we will be hosting a charity Super Bowl party with a silent auction.

If you have anything you would be willing to donate to the auction or could assist us in gathering items for donation, it would be greatly appreciated.

As items start coming in for the auction, we will be posting them to the charity section of the Merou Grotto website.

Current donation pledges include several bottles of wine, DJ packages, Anheuser Busch items, a gift basket of Wildtree products, plus several other items.

Feel free to contact Edward at if you have items or connections to receive donations for this event.
