Tickets can be purchased at the dinner for $10.00 for adults, and children under ten for $5.00. Plans for the day include music, a beer tent, chicken drop game, and a cash bash. Tickets for the cash bash can be purchased in advance from participating club members for $10.00 each with a limit of only 750 to be sold. The cash bash drawing will start at 6:00pm with multiple prizes from $25.00 to $1000.00. Chicken drop squares may also be purchased in advance from club members.
Several local organizations and their auxiliaries including the Durand Lions, VFW Post 2272, Eagles Aerie 3851, Durand Rotary, and AmVets Post 2273 are sponsoring and volunteering at the dinner.
Since 2002, support from the annual chicken barbecue has provided funds for the Durand Patriots to mail personal care packages to U.S. deployed service members that are sons and daughters of local residents.
In past years, this successful community fund raiser has also provided financial support for the Durand Veterans Park, Durand Area School’s Back Pack program, the Durand soccer field house, and Durand Union Station, Inc. Funds from the dinner have made many enhancements possible throughout the Durand area through the years.
The entire community is invited to enjoy a good meal and good times together in support of our local organizations.
