Roger Westcott and his team at Texas Roadhouse once again partnered with the Club to provide great food and great service for the guests.  The Steak & Burger Dinner is a signature event for Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide, where all guests dine on hamburgers and the Club kids are able to feel special, eating a steak dinner.

“The concept for the event is unusual in that community leaders can sit down face to face with the kids they help,” continues Ross.  “It’s a chance for the kids to say thank you, but more importantly, it’s a chance for them to share what the Club means to them and how these community leaders have helped them through the Club.”

Sponsors for the event include not only LISEGA, Texas Roadhouse, The Old Mill and Holiday Inn Pigeon Forge but help from IHOP Chapman Highway location and Smoky Mountain Balloon Company.

The ticket price for the event is $125 per person, with limited seating.  Table sponsorships are still available and can be reserved. For more information on the event and how to register for mobile bidding contact Karen Robinette at 428-6550 or krobinette@bgcsmoky.com
