Steak and crab feed benefit for children set for July 9

Tickets are on sale now for the second annual Jethro’s King Crab & Steak Feed on Friday, July 9 from 5-9 p.m. in the parking lot at Jethro’s Oven and Grille located at 1281 Kimmerling Road in the Gardnerville Ranchos. The event sold out last year.

The fundraiser features a complete dinner for only $25. Reserved tables of eight are available for $200. Dinners offer a choice of a one-pound serving of king crab legs or a 12-ounce rib eye steak, both with all the trimmings. Hot dog meals can also be purchased for $5.

Enjoy music, fun and a surprise guest. Dozens of raffle prizes and a special live auction for a fiddle signed by the legendary Charlie Daniels, dinner for 10 at the JT Basque Restaurant and a stay at the Carson Valley Inn with meals. Take a chance on a $500 shopping spree at Scheels in Sparks or Lira’s Market in Minden. All proceeds from the event will be used to help youth in our community. This year’s recipients are MEFIYI Foundation, Austin’s House and the Douglas High School Leadership Class. The MEFIYI Foundation will donate to Douglas High School volleyball and provide additional college scholarships for the Molly Youth Awards.
