No lie, Baltimore Ravens football players Matt Birk, Joe Flacco, Michael Oher, Ben Grubbs, Ray Rice, and Cam Cameron will be your official servers at Morton’s The Steakhouse on Monday, May 10th benefiting the HIKE Foundation.
The Baltimore Ravens will be passing the plates not the football
Imagine having your order taken by Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco or offensive tackle Michael Oher, drinks poured by guard Ben Grubbs, dinner served by running back Ray Rice or offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and dessert brought to you by Matt Birk. These sports celebrities have agreed to trade in their uniforms and helmets for plates and aprons for this evening only! Along with these special guests, who are already confirmed, additional celebrities will be announced.
Guests at the event will enjoy a four-course menu, consisting of Morton’s signature hors d’oeuvres, mixed field greens salad, double cut filet mignon and colossal shrimp Alexander accompanied by mashed potatoes and steamed fresh jumbo asparagus, and a dessert trio of New York cheesecake, double chocolate mousse, and fresh seasonal berries and sabayon sauce.
Exclusive Baltimore Ravens’ memorabilia
The event also includes silent and live auctions, including the most sought after Ravens’ memorabilia and other exclusive items, with the proceeds benefiting Matt Birk’s HIKE Foundation, whose mission is to provide at-risk children with the educational opportunities needed to excel in the classroom and in life.
Reception and Silent Auction starting at 6 p.m. and Dinner and Live Auction at 7 p.m.
A limited number of tickets are available for $250 per person, inclusive of tax, gratuity and valet parking. Advanced reservations are required by calling 410-547-8255.
