Steak fundraiser to raise money for scholarships

Published 5:20 pm Saturday, April 18, 2015

The sun is shining, spring is in the air and steaks are on the grill.

The Izaak Walton League will host a Steak Cookout Fundraiser at 5:30 p.m. on April 22 at the Izaak Walton Cabin in Todd Park. Steak cookouts are the main fundraising events for the Austin Chapter of the Izaak Walton League. The menu will include a 10 ounce sirloin steak, baked potato, coleslaw, a bun and fresh veggies. The event is open to the public, and tickets are $12 and will be available at the door.

Proceeds from the May steak cookout will be used to provide scholarships to area youth to attend summer camps at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center near Lanesboro. Eagle Bluff summer camps give students the opportunity to learn about nature and develop outdoor skills such as canoeing, fishing and camping. This is the 10th year Austin Chapter 10 has provided scholarships to Eagle Bluff.
