Michael Wacha Announced as Guest Speaker for the 4th Annual Steak & Burger Dinner

Today, Title Sponsor US Bank and the Boys & Girls Club of Poplar Bluff announced that the 2015 guest speaker for the 4th annual Steak & Burger event will be St. Louis Cardinals' starting pitcher, Michael Wacha. Topping big names such as Mike Matheney and Jim Edmonds was difficult, but the committee for this year's event is excited to bring in the 2015 Cardinals All-Star pitcher as the headline speaker.

The 4th Annual Steak & Burger will take place on Thursday, November 19th at the Black River Coliseum. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. with our youth seated with community members, serving as a n auctioneer for one prestigious steak dinner per table. Don't worry if you don't win the steak, because there will also be hand-crafted gourmet burgers served as well!

Sponsorship information is available at the Boys & Girls Club. If you are interested in joining us and becoming a sponsor for the event, please contact the Boys & Girls Club at (573) 776-1690. Dinner tickets are $75 and are available for purchase at the Boys & Girls Club Hentz Center, and at Kelly Spralding Farmers Insurance.

This annual event is being made possible by several community sponsors and contributors.
