The Annual Steak Fry Fundraiser for the Runestone Museum Foundation will be Wednesday, August 7 in Fort Alexandria (Broadway Ballroom in case of rain). Social hour begins at 5:00 p.m. with a steak and chicken dinner to follow. There will be door prizes and a raffle giveaway as well as a brief presentation about the museum. The even originally began in 1984 as a Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce “Past Presidents” dinner to help raise money for the newly independent Runestone Museum Foundation. Now in its 35th year, the event continues to be a fundraising event hosted by the Runestone Museum Foundation. At this year’s event there will be door prizes, a raffle, extra drink tickets and a brief program about the museum. Each ticket is $100 and good for two people. Tickets may be purchased at the Runestone Museum or from a museum board member. Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria will cater the event and the City of Alexandria will provide the picnic tables for the event.
