A number of local businesses and residents have joined forces to help the employees of the Sportsman's Cafe, which was damaged in a fire on Dec. 20, 2013. 

A benefit dinner, which will include a buffet dinner provided by local restaurants and live music and entertainment, is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24, 2014, at the British American Club at 73 Maple St. Tickets cost $10 per person, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to benefit the two employees of the Sportsman's Cafe who have been without work since the Spruce Street restaurant/bar burned down in late December. The dinner will start at 5 p.m. 

“I think because (Sportsman's Cafe Owner Robert Brannick) grew up in town, so everyone’s known him for years," said Manchester resident Taylor Rolland, one of the organizers of the benefit dinner. "Everyone’s just coming together for it.” 

Rolland said that many local businesses have been eager to lend a hand since hearing about the benefit dinner, with the buffet food being donated by Highland Park Market, Manchester Country Club, Mulberry Street, Landmark Cafe and Pagani's Manchester Caterers. The event will include a cash bar with live music and entertainment provided by Van Halen Enterprises.

Roland said those interested in tickets can contact either her – 860-995-1693 – or Michael Brannick – 860-874-7197 – for more info. Tickets can also be purchased at Mulberry Street, Landmark Cafe, Center Perk and the British American Club. 

Landmark Cafe will also donate 20 percent of their sales on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, to the event. 

Information about this event is also available on the Sportsman's Cafe Employees Benefit Facebook page
