EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- The theme for the 10th Annual Boys & Girls Club, Steak & Burger Dinner was "Rise to Greatness- Inspiring the Next Generation of Leaders."
More than 100 club members attended Thursday's dinner at the Florian Gardens. Executive Director Sara Antonson says the fundraiser will help pay for transportation to the club as they are now able to offer bus service to every school in the Eau Claire Area School District.
Antonson says, "Just this year in working with the school district, we know that 71% of our members that come over two days a week have increased their grade point average. We know if we can get them in the club, we can work with them with academics, leadership, nutrition, and character."
WEAU's Bob Gallaher was the emcee for the Steak and Burger Dinner. This year's event raised $75, 610.
