New Steak Fry Fundraiser also set for Aug. 3
A new annual Lorain Sports Hall of Fame Steak Fry Fundraiser makes it debut on Sunday, Aug. 3, at the Amherst Eagles Hall, 1161 Milan Avenue, Amherst, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased from LSHOF committee members, or by contacting Tom Bauer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 440-213-8719 or 440-282-4624 by July 31.
The price includes a steak dinner and complementary beverages (pop and beer). For children, $5 purchases a hotdog or burger, chips and a beverage, instead of a steak, if desired. A Chinese raffle for prize baskets will be held, plus a 50/50 raffle.
Those who are signed up for the LSHOF Golf Outing scheduled for earlier that day, can, if desired, have their steak with family and friends at the 4 p.m. public steak fry serving, rather than at the earlier steak dinner for golf teams.
Sign up now for Aug. 3 Golf Outing to benefit LSHOF
The annual Golf Outing to benefit the Lorain Sports Hall of Fame will be held on Sunday, Aug. 3, at the FoxCreek Golf Club, 5445 Beavercrest Dr., Lorain. Mark your calendars, and get tickets for your group. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. There will be two flights, with prize money.
The outing will be a four-person scramble. The cost is $75 per person ($300 per foursome), which includes 18 holes of golf, cart, refreshments on the course, plus a quarter-pound hot dog at the turn and a steak dinner at the end.
The steak dinner will be served to golfers at 2 p.m. at the Amherst Eagles hall at 1161 Milan Avenue, in Amherst. Alternatively, golfers can choose to wait and have their steak at the 4 p.m. public steak fry with family and friends (see the item above for public steak fry details.)
A hole in one contest offers the winner ownership of a Dodge Ram Crew Cab 4×4 truck, sponsored by Ed Tomko Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Inc.
A skins game is available at $20 per team.
All golfers will receive a one-year subscription to Golf Digest Magazine.
