EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) It was a great night to get out and enjoy some food, music and sit on a bridge.

Wednesday was the inaugural "Grand Evening on the Bridge" event in Eau Claire.

The fundraiser was sold out, and additional seating had to be added.

People enjoyed a three course meal, as well as music and a great view of the Chippewa River.

A portion of the money raised went to help the Chippewa Theatre Guild's "Raise the Roof" campaign, while another portion of it went to support more community events in the downtown area.

"It's just a beautiful night and we've had a lot of great helpers participate with the food and everything else so it's just a really neat experience and the setting is, you can't get anything better," says organizer Salina Heller.

A single meal was $85 and a meal for two was $150.
