The Chester High School Boosters are hosting its 14th annual tri-tip dinner, Thursday, Sept. 26, in Chester Elementary School’s gymnasium, from 5 to 7 p.m.
There will be plenty of tables and chairs for attendees who choose to dine in during the feast, which will include tri-tip, a baked potato, salad, corn on the cob, a bread roll, dessert, and coffee, water or lemonade, said event co-organizer Kristen Montgomery with equal assistance by Mary Juska.
For those who prefer the convenience of staying in their cars, patrons can drive-through behind the school starting on Martin Street by the Beacon Gas Station, where they can pay cash or write a check when they receive their food, or present a pre-purchased ticket.
Montgomery said that Chester High cheerleaders and a few football players would be on hand to help direct traffic.
Tickets are $10 each with children 5 and under eating free with purchase of adult tickets, available from any CHS athlete, in the Chester High or elementary school main offices, at Cravings Restaurant in downtown Chester or at the door.
Montgomery wanted everyone to know to buy tickets well in advance however, as the fundraiser is highly popular and will likely sell out quickly.
She also mentioned her appreciation to Holiday Market and the Pine Shack for their sponsorships.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together for an important need, she said, with proceeds going to the CHS Boosters, which then provides monetary support for the sports programs at the high school with the purchase of sports equipment and other expenses like travel to games.
“I really encourage people to come out and support the kids,” she said, adding that the community “has always come out in big numbers. … It’s greatly appreciated!”
