Matt Birk and Friends Celebrity Server Night

Because I love the Ravens:

Baltimore Ravens’ All-Pro Center Matt Birk and Morton’s The Steakhouse are partnering to host "Matt Birk and Friends Celebrity Server Night," presented by Northwestern Mutual, to benefit Matt Birk’s HIKE Foundation on Monday, May 9 at 7 p.m.

Imagine Matt Birk and his teammates trading in their uniforms and helmets for plates and aprons and taking your order, pouring your drinks, and serving your dinner and desserts. Last year’s celebrity servers included Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco, guard Ben Grubbs, offensive tackle Michael Oher, and many others! This year’s celebrities will be announced in the coming weeks!

Guests at the event will enjoy a four-course menu, consisting of Morton’s signature hors d’oeuvres passed butler-style, such as tuna tartare canap├ęs, miniature crab cakes, and roma tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil on crostini, as well as a mixed field greens salad, double cut filet mignon and colossal shrimp Alexander accompanied by mashed potatoes and steamed fresh jumbo asparagus, and a dessert trio of New York cheesecake, double chocolate mousse, and fresh seasonal berries and sabayon sauce.

A limited number of tickets are available for $250 per person, inclusive of tax, gratuity and valet service. Advanced reservations are required by purchasing your tickets at HikeFoundation.org. For questions, please call Judi DiGioia, Sales & Marketing Manager at Morton’s, at 410-547-8255.

The event also includes silent and live auctions, including the most sought after Ravens memorabilia and other exclusive items, with the proceeds benefiting Matt Birk’s HIKE Foundation, whose mission is to provide at-risk children with the educational opportunities needed to excel in the classroom and in life.
