Mercy Service League recently held its annual Celebrity Bartender Night at 91 Wood Fired Oven. Many turned out to support this very successful fundraising and friend-raising event, which will benefit Mercy Medical Center and its purchase of Xenex Germ-Zapping Robots. These robots are helping the hospital create the safest possible environment for patients, families and visitors. The featured local celebrity bartenders were Dr. Margaret Kobe, Dr. Badie Al Nemr, Paul Hiltz, Dr. Al Martello, Laura Miller, Angela Eggleston, Dane Lane, Tammi Colly, Mark Butterworth, Dr. Elizabeth Butterworth, Fonda Williams and Jeff Pike. A portion of all food and drink sales also benefitted Mercy Medical Center.
