The event will be held at The Colonnade, a large banquet facility just north of Milan, Oh. at 11001 US 250 (Milan Ave.) at Ohio Turnpike (I-80/90) Exit 118 (Norwalk/Sandusky exit), approximately 10 minutes north of the racetrack, and not far from Sandusky, Oh.

Activities will commence at 6:00 PM, with a cocktail reception hour, followed by a buffet dinner featuring Pork Au Champagne with shallots, mushrooms and wine sauce or Chicken Tetrazzini, accompanied with Oven Roasted Red Skin Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole, whole green beans with slivered almonds, Colonnade Signature salad, yeast rolls with honey butter, plus a Popcorn Station for dessert (various flavors).  A cash bar will be open throughout the evening. 

For the roast festivities, Larry Morgan will be joined on stage by the six roasters, chosen by Larry.  The cast of roasters and the Master of Ceremonies will be announced in the near future. 

Individual seat tickets are available at $80.00 per seat, sponsored, V.I.P. tables (8 seats) are available at $1500.00 per table.  Each V.I.P.-sponsored table will receive complementary bottles of red and white wine, company logo rights on the stage back drop, table signage plus recognition on event marketing materials.
