“Each year we have a theme, and this year the theme is Wild Wild West. So guests can wear their cowboy hats and boots, if they want to,” said Executive Director Beckie Sias. “It’s one of our biggest fundraising events and everyone really enjoys themselves.”

The menu includes greens with tomato, cucumber and shredded carrot, choice of dressing, penne with grilled chicken breast, roasted cherry tomatoes and four cheese alfredo, sliced roast beef with scratch gravy, broccoli and cheddar casserole, potatoes O’Brien, apple pie and chocolate mint cake.
