Those feeling hungry (and generous) still have something to celebrate for St. Patrick’s Day this year.

The Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg’s annual fundraiser — ShamROCK the ‘Burg — is scheduled for March 12-13 at the Culture Cafe, 747 Scotland St. from 3-6 p.m.

People can buy their meals and schedule a time to pick them up at the cafe — curbside.

“Every meal purchase will include a chance to win an amazing prize!” according to Culture Cafe’s Facebook post. “The lucky winner, accompanied by three friends, will enjoy a three-hour tour of the Mobjack Bay aboard the 40-foot Bay Retriever, a Mainship Motor Yacht. The cruise includes a Luau Dinner prepared by Chef Scott Hoyland.”

Attendees can choose from a traditional Irish dinner or a seven-course Irish meal.

The Irish dinner is $25 and includes “a generous portion” of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots and Irish soda bread.

The seven-course meal costs $15 and includes a loaded baked potato and a six-pack of Alewerks’ Superb IPA.

For more chances to win the grand prize, people can also buy raffle tickets for $10.

The organization had previously canceled their annual ShamROCK the ‘Burg! fundraiser because of the coronavirus pandemic and refunded tickets.
