Proceeds to benefit Meals on Wheels of Rutland County
Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging will host its 4th Annual Lobster & Steak Bake to benefit Meals on Wheels of Rutland County on Friday, August 17.
The fundraiser event, which is sponsored by Rutland Regional Medical Center, will be held at the Godnick Center on Deer Street in Rutland. The event will kick off at 4:00 p.m. with a social hour and yard games, and dinners will be served from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
“The lobster and steak bake is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, and one that directly supports the Meals on Wheels program in Rutland County,” said Chris Adams, Development and Communications Director with SVCOA. “Given a recent rise in demand on the program, fundraisers like this are essential in ensuring that Meals on Wheels is able to continue to operate at its current level in our region moving forward.”
Dinner options at the event include either lobster or steak and all sides for $35.00, or both lobster and steak plus all sides for $43.00. Sides include baked potato, corn, coleslaw, dinner rolls and cake. A cash bar will be open beginning at 4:00 p.m., and live music will be performed by SVCOA’s-own Aaron Brush.
A limited number of tickets to the event will be sold at the door, and those interested are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance by contacting Adams at 802-236-1560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Along with supporting a great cause, the event is an opportunity for the local community to get together, enjoy some terrific food and live music, and connect with friends and neighbors,” Adams said.
Additional supporters of the event include Lindley Food Service, Rutland Recreation Department, Rutland County Sheriff’s Department and Rutland City Fire Department.
