The fundraiser, which also included a dinner of fresh-cut beef, baked potatoes and peach cobbler, is meant to raise seven scholarships of $1,000 for Boone County high school seniors, typically one from each major school. Preference is given to area youth who belong to the organization. This year, the group added an additional scholarship at the state level.
