This year's fundraiser will be catered by the ever popular Chef Mike Fisher, who is a former Baler himself. Many of you may remember his dad, John Fisher, of the Class of 1972. 

Chef Mike recently opened his own restaurant in downtown Hollister. It's called Fisher's Delicatessen, located on San Benito Street across from the Veterans Memorial Building. He and his staff prepare dishes with fresh, local or regional ingredients. In addition to the daily menu of small plates, salads, and entrees, the restaurant offers local wines and beers on tap. 

Check out Chef Mike's menu for our luncheon on Sunday, August 7, 2016 at the Pinnacle Hills Golf Course Clubhouse.  Yummmmmmm!
