Patrons will be able to enjoy stadium-style food and DJ music as
well as comedy from Mason City Limits. There will be a 50-50
drawing, a silent auction and much more. A cash bar will also be
available. The event will begin at 6 p.m.
Organizers say that more
than 75 local businesses have donated gift certificates and other
items for the silent auction.
There will also be special check presentations to the
Lincoln/Logan Food Pantry and Christian Child Care, two of the 14
agencies that United Way of Logan County supports.
In all, for the year 2011, the United Way of Logan County will
remit $95,000 to 14 area organizations. That is a 20 percent
increase over 2010. With thanks, the board attributes the increase
to all the area businesses and individuals who have increased their
donations this year, despite rough economic times.
The price of an individual ticket is $25, which includes
admission, free food and a "Tailgating" T-shirt.

The goal for next year is $98,000.
The United Way of Logan County is a not-for-profit organization
with a volunteer board. All donations are tax-deductible.
