Steak feed nets $5,000

More than 800 community members and neighbors gathered May 22 on Pacific University’s campus for the 57th Annual Rotary Steak Feed.

“It’s a great community effort,” said Jeff Duyck, who chaired the Forest Grove Rotary Club event committee. “A lot of people catch up with their neighbors while they’re waiting in line.”

At $16 a ticket, Duyck estimated the fundraiser netted between $5,000 and $8,000 for the club’s service projects and programs. The 80-member club prepared and served steaks from Columbia Empire Meats in Portland.

Funds will support internationally inbound and outbound high school students through the Rotary Youth Exchange program. Members have participated in the program for 50 years, and currently host a student from Thailand.
