VALPARAISO | Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County will “Celebrate Everyday Heroes” at the 14th annual Steak & Burger Dinner and Silent Auction on Oct. 22 at the Harre Union Ballroom at Valparaiso University. Tickets are on sale now.

The doors open at 5:15 p.m. with early bidding on silent auction items. Dinner begins at 6 p.m. Keynote remarks will be delivered by Josh Bleill, community spokesman for the Indianapolis Colts. Bleill is a veteran and author of “One Step at a Time.” He will inspire guests with his heroic story of perseverance.

Steak & Burger Dinner is an annual fundraising event specially designed to bring caring community leaders and Boys & Girls Club members together for a fun filled evening. Each table is shared by adults and club members offering the opportunity for both to share stories and experiences together. At this unique dinner, the club members are served steaks and everyone else eats burgers.

"Just like Josh Bleill, everyday heroes are found at each and every one of our Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County. Our kids, leaders of the Clubs, and volunteers continue to make an impact and enrich our community,” said Analisa Warring, Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County Board member and Steak & Burger Dinner Committee Chairperson. “I am honored to be involved in this dynamic event that solidifies the engagement of our Clubs and our communities.”

Table sponsorship opportunities are available and range from $700 to $1500. Individual tickets are also available for $100 each.
