Cattlemen host charity dinner

Members of the Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association sub-committee carrying the title of public affairs and education had an idea, a few years ago, to promote fine dining with beef as the main entrée and to provide support to a local charity at the same time.

To that end, they came up with the Beef Benefit Bonanza dinner, a dining experience with live entertainment, featuring beef — of course! 

The previous four Beef Benefit Bonanza events were held at the Laughing Loon Restaurant which is no longer in existence so they have chosen the Beeotcheese Bistro & Bakery as the new venue.

This year’s fifth annual Beef Benefit Bonanza dinner will be held on Thursday, May 12 with doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner at 6:30 p.m.

There are no reserved tables so if you are with a group, come early.

The cost is $45 per person and that includes an appetizer, dinner, dessert, the gratuity and live entertainment as well as a chance to win some wonderful door prizes. Margett’s Meats donated the appetizer beef, Save-On Foods, the beef for the entrée, and Beeotcheese is providing the rest of the meal at cost and is donating their preparation time and service. Several local businesses have donated great door prizes.

The Pregnancy Outreach Program has been chosen by the committee as the recipients of the funds raised this year and all proceeds will go to the chosen charity. 

Past recipients have been the Salvation Army Food Bank, the Cariboo Memorial Hospital trust (two times) and Boys and Girls Club N.O.O.P.A. youth centre.

The entertainment for the dinner will be provided by the Tannis family, who will be singing and performing some ventriloquism.

The seating, all in the main restaurant, limits the number of tickets to 100, and they are going fast.

It should be a fun-filled evening in support of local program in need of funds. 

For more information, or to purchase tickets call: Diann Reay (250-392-5130), Pam Mahon (250-296-3365), Lonnie Rolph (250-620-3512), Marie Mervyn (250-440-5635) or Liz Twan (250-440-5605).
