Zionsville — A Zionsville native, Toby Miles said he enjoys coming to the annual gala. The Friendly’s owner, Scott Barnes, said he’s hosted the event for 11 years, since he purchased the establishment, and the previous owners had done so for years before that. His wife, Sharon, said approximately 1,500 people attend for the food, drink and entertainment. This year, Second Fiddle performed Irish songs on the stage, and a young pipe-and-drum trio from Caledonia Pipe Band, of Indianapolis, also regaled the crowd with Irish melodies.
