A fundraiser will be held in honor of the Andrew McDonald fund on Sunday, February 26 at 2:00 p.m., at Mario’s Restaurant in East Longmeadow. McDonald was a LHS student who died suddenly in 2022, and he also worked at Mario’s.

In honor of McDonald’s heritage, the restaurant will be serving a traditional Irish buffet. Musician Dee Reilly will be attending the event to celebrate with Irish music. Tickets can be purchased for $50. Additionally, there will be a 50/50 raffle. 

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Andrew McDonald scholarship fund to help send a Ludlow High School senior to college.
