The Burbank Civitan Club has moved its major fundraiser, the St. Patrick’s Day Champagne Brunch, to the Burbank Holiday Inn's South Pacific Ballroom for this year's event on Sunday.

If you haven't been to the Holiday Inn for some time, you will be mighty impressed with the recent redecoration of all its banquet facilities, executed beautifully by Erika Hofmann, director of operations for the hotel. They are lovely!

Civitan members will welcome guests beginning at 10 a.m. with brunch served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Better set your alarms because we lose an hour of sleep due to the return of daylight saving time.

There will be a silent auction, music, Irish dancers, a buffet brunch including traditional St. Patrick's Day fare — corned beef and cabbage— along with Champagne, door prizes and socializing.

Adult tickets are $45 and children, 12 years and under, are $20. For tickets or more Information, call Ms. Burbank — Elaine Paonessa at (818) 845-6851 or Dee Dee Rulow at (818) 843-6950.
