The Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley held their First Annual Steak & Burger dinner presented by Outback Steakhouse Tuesday night at the Heyde Center for the Arts in Chippewa Falls. The event had a special twist as the kids enjoyed steaks while the adults enjoyed burgers. A night to show the youth of the community just how important they are. A fun-filled evening in support of youth from the Greater Chippewa Valley. WEAU-TV Sports Anchor Bob Gallaher hosted Tuesday night's event while University of Wisconsin Head Women's basketball coach Lisa Stone was the featured speaker. According to Boys & Girls Club Executive Director Sara Antonson, Tuesday night's event raised between nine and ten thousand dollars.
The Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley has a donor willing to match up to $300,000 for money raised by the end of this year, December 31st, 2007. For more information on how you can help the Boys & Girls Club, you can contact Sara Antonson at (715) 855-0081.
