Bar hosts ice walk benefitSubmitted: 02/20/2015
MERRILL - You can do more than just fish on the ice Saturday. Bev and Tom's Bar and Grill in Merrill will host its 3rd Ice Walk benefit. For $20, you can walk to benefit cancer research. They're hoping to double the number of attendees for their 2015 benefit.


"This year we are going to donate the money to child cancer research," said Bev and Tom's Bar and Grill Owner Bev Godleske. "We're hoping to have more than 40, 50, or 60 people this year, which would really be great."

The benefit includes raffles, prizes, and a costume contest. People will walk a path from Bev and Tom's to the Merrill Council Grounds on Lake Alexander. The bar owners say they have the ice cleared and ready for the walk.

"The ice conditions are fabulous," said Godleske. "There's no slush on it this year; it's very thick. The people that plow it, my husband and the bar owner down the road, make sure the ice is safe. If it's not safe, they close off the road."

The ice walk will start at 1 p.m Saturday at the bar. Registration begins at noon. Event organizers hope they can raise more than $1,000 this year.
