LSHOF2014STEAKFRY

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 tbauer@bright.net 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
