2018 Block and Bridle Steak Fry
The Block and Bridle Steak Fry a huge Success!
Block and Bridle’s 20th annual steak fry on September 7th was a sell out! Cargill graciously donated 250 steaks for this event. Laura Oltman, who is an Animal Science Alum and is working at Cargill brought her grill team and served up some delicious strip steaks. Officers and committee chairs busted their tails selling tickets. Flyers were hung up around both campuses the second week of school, the event was shared on various types of social media and by word of mouth. We sold out of our event the day before! There were over 320 people who attended, and we projected for only 250 people this year. Cheesy potatoes, green beans and a cookie were the sides to the meal. In addition to Cargill, other sponsors for the event were NE Cattlemen, Dicke Consulting, Midwest Livestock Systems, Inc., Connealy Angus Ranch, Feller & Company, Wolf Brothers & Reich Inc., Phibro Animal Health, Bill’s Volume Sales, Inc., and Donald & Judy Meiergerd.
The Animal Science staff and faculty signed up to help serve at the event which is always greatly appreciated, and club members helped clean up and tear down chairs and tables at the end. With this event being the club’s first big fundraiser of the year we raised $2600 in addition to donations received. There was so much support and such a great turnout, not only with sponsors giving money for this event, but volunteers helping before, during and afterwards. Block and Bridle thanks everyone for their help and support and, hopefully, we can sell out again next year!
