Dinner also includes one choice of tea, water, beer or wine. Entertainment will include live music provided by Craig Corzatt and a live auction.

Pre-ordering of tickets is highly encouraged to help with the planning of food. Tickets for the Steak Fry Dinner may be pre-purchased for $25 each now through May 5th, 2023 on the Fort Madison Family YMCA’s website: fortmadisony.org/steak-fry. A limited amount of tickets will be available at the door for $35 each. 

Online ticket purchasers will receive hardcopy tickets. Hardcopy tickets can be picked up at the Fort Madison Family YMCA by contacting Ryan Wilson after online purchase. Or purchased directly at the Fort Madison Family YMCA during regular business hours.

Funds raised during this event will benefit the Fort Madison Family YMCA’s Annual Sustaining Campaign to help provide Scholarships and Financial Assistance to individuals and families in need and to help the Fort Madison Rotary Club continue doing the great things they do every year which include: donations of coats, scarves, and mittens to local school students; annually awarding three $1000 scholarships for area students; sending several high school youth annually to a week-long leadership training experience: RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) and middle school students to YRYLA (Young RYLA); donating to MOST (Miles of Smiles), and repairs and improvements at Central Park, District 6000 Rotary Grant.  

Each year the Fort Madison Family YMCA grants financial assistance to over 400 Individuals for YMCA programs and memberships, childcare assistance, summer camp, swim lessons, and more. The Fort Madison Rotary Club helps various organizations with financial support such as partnering with Iowa Fertilizer Company in providing hats, gloves, coats, and other various items of clothing during the winter months. Other previous support includes granting $1,000 to Lee County Crimestoppers, Sponsored Fort Madison Swim Day at the Public Pool, The Old Settlers Park Trick or Treat, and the Fort Madison Parade of Lights.

A Facebook Event has been created and updates including auction items, local support, and additional event information will be posted in the discussion feed of the event page. Details and updates may also be found on the Fort Madison Family YMCA’s website.
