BGC-Isiah-WiluszTickets are available now for Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County’s 13th Annual Steak & Burger Dinner and Silent Auction to be held Monday, October 15, 2012 at Valparaiso University’s Harre Union. Steak & Burger Dinner is designed to bring community leaders and Boys & Girls Club members together for a fun filled evening. Tables are shared by adults and Club members to offer the opportunity for both to exchange experiences and enjoy a meal together. At this unique dinner, the Club members are served steaks and everyone else eats burgers.

All proceeds from the Steak & Burger Dinner and Silent Auction will benefit the high quality programs and services provided by Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County to nearly 5,000 youth annually. Based on their proven youth development strategy, the Clubs offer members the chance to discover what’s possible and reach their potential. Club members have the opportunity achieve in ways they never imagined such as create award-winning digital art, grow a garden and learn how to cook healthy meals using fresh vegetables, or earn an “A” on a test with the help of a tutor.

Doors open at 5:15 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Acclaimed speaker Jim “Basketball” Jones will bring his inspirational and entertaining message about overcoming personal challenges.
