9th annual ‘All 4 Charity’ King Crab & Steak Cookout set
The ninth annual “All 4 Charity” King Crab & Steak Cookout is scheduled Aug. 10 at Douglas County Community & Senior Center. The event has raised $185,000 and has donated all funds to many worthy Douglas County programs. This year’s event proceeds will support MEFIYI (Me for Incredible Youth) middle school and high school 2018-19 programs and Douglas High School volleyball.
MEFIYI’s REWARD Club Program provides mentorship and life skills regarding the sports, education and job-career support for middle school and high school student-athletes. Like many high school extracurricular programs, Douglas volleyball must raise its own funds to provide a meaningful experience for its student-athletes who volunteer and represent their school, family and community.
The Big Heart Rock and Roll Band will provide an acoustic classic rock entertainment that will include raffle, silent and live auction. Tickets are $40 for choice of one pound king crab or 12 ounce ribeye steak dinner. Online tickets are available at http://www.mefiyi.org. Tickets may be purchased at Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce. For information email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 775-781-5954.
