Saturday's Minor Miracle Celebration Banquet is a fund-raising event, with the proceeds benefiting the Chris Minor Scholarship Fund.

Mayor Goode purchased a table's worth of seats at a September 1984 banquet featuring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, an aide to housing activist Charles L. "Boo" Burrus testified in Common Pleas Court yesterday. The aide, Debra Cooper, said she accompanied Burrus to the mayor's office in the summer of 1984, then waited in a reception room while Burrus met with the mayor and collected a check to pay for the table.

You've seen those friendly messages on your utility bills - things like where to call if you smell gas, or how to get help if you're behind on payments. Well, the city Water Department earlier this month had a novel message for more than 100,000 customers: a plug for a $100-a-plate charity banquet honoring Mayor Rendell as "Man of the Year. " "What?" Rendell said yesterday when told of the message. "That is enormously inappropriate. " Rendell said he was unaware of the plug and would instruct the department not to use space on water bills for private appeals.

Donald Hodge's status as a member of the Temple basketball team was unclear last night after he and teammate Chris Lovelace were prohibited by coach John Chaney from attending the team's postseason banquet. Hodge, the team's starting center, and Lovelace, a backup front-line player, were not allowed to attend the banquet at the Hershey Hotel for violating a team rule, according to Chaney. Chaney said last night that the two players had missed three team academic tutoring sessions - two last week and one this week - which is a violation of team rules.

When I went "downashore" to explore vegan dining possibilities, I expected to find juice bars, sorbet shops, candy stores - places with a single, plant-based alternative. They were there, but I also found many businesses getting truly serious about multiple animal-free options. The old standard of a lone veggie burger on the menu, or the option to "veganize" items by leaving out the meat or cheese doesn't cut it in 2016. My intrepid guide and copilot for the day was Anne Dinshah, a vegan-cuisine consultant who works with food retailers.

The banquet was wrapping up — the annual Memorial Day gathering at the 98-year-old American Legion hall in the city's Bridesburg neighborhood — when the post commander suddenly ordered everyone out of the building. There was a fire, those in attendance at the Boleslaw Grochowski American Legion Post 396 were told. As the 60 to 70 people stood outside in the 2300 block of Orthodox Street, they figured it was something small because they didn't see smoke or flames. Patrick Love Sr., the post commander, had seen the smoke in the crawl space at the top of the shaft of the dumbwaiter used to move beer and other items between floors in the two-story building.

POSTSEASON AWARDS banquets tend to make an impression, whether you made it to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, the second week or the Final Four. Just because. It's a celebration of everything the previous six months entailed for a group of young lives who will remain forever intertwined, great or otherwise. That's how it is in the real world, as some of them will soon find out when they embark upon their respective post-college journeys. Somehow, it'll never be the same.

Six brothers, one coach. That's the shorthand on one of the more remarkable stories in the history of South Jersey football. But that hardly begins to tell the tale of the half-dozen Selverian siblings and late, great Pennsauken High School football coach Vince McAneney and the heyday of the Indians program. "A golden time," Rich Selverian, the eldest brother and helmet-less trailblazer, said of the era in Pennsauken football from the late 1970s through the early 1990s. The six Selverians - Rich, Jeff, Mark, Greg, Arthur, and Kurk - along with their parents, Stephen and Sandra, will be honored at the South Jersey Football Coaches Association's annual Hall of Fame banquet on the eve of the Adam Taliaferro Foundation's all-star football game June 29 at Rowan University.

A restaurant that is going out of business usually doesn't get to savor a months-long victory lap. But for D'Ignazio's Towne House in Media, slated to close for good at the end of the year, the long goodbye seems to fit just about right. After all, just about everything about the Towne House - the Baltimore Pike landmark that dates to the Truman administration - is rare. For decades it has hosted politicians, from council members and judges to legislators and a future president.
