Cookout Success

As some of you know, my workplace has a team in the local Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society.  We were getting very close to our fundraising goal, so we decided to have a cookout to try to reach it.  Well, we did it!!  We sold meals consisting of either grilled Green River Cattle Company hamburgers or grilled Uncle Charlie’s tenderloin sandwiches, a bag of chips, a homemade dessert, and a canned drink for $5.00.  We ended up making over $400!!!  That was pure profit since we had some very generous donations. 


My father-in-law is one of the co-owners of the Green River Cattle Company, a locally owned and operated gourmet beef business.  He graciously donated 40 quarter-pound hamburgers for our cause.  Thanks!!!  We used bake sale money to purchase the tenderloin.  My co-worker K, who co-owns a local restaurant, donated the chips.  The Wal-mart store in the next town donated the drinks, buns, and cheese, and the team members made the desserts.


I had plans of getting some very good photos of all the action, but there was NO time!  I got a few shots of our set-up before the rush began, but that was all.
