Lions meat drawing Saturday to benefit new school teams

NIAGARA, Wis. – The Niagara Lions Club will host another meat drawing on Saturday at Bob’s Country Bar in Niagara, with all the proceeds going to support the new school boys’ baseball and girls softball teams.

The event will be similar to the Lions’ meat drawing held in January.

“Another huge crowd is expected to attend the drawing and later dance to music performed by some of the area’s most popular musicians,” said a Lions spokesperson.

The meat drawing will get underway at 11 a.m. and the meat delicacies will be provided by Marcouiller’s Foods and Kooch’s Meats and parents of the athletes will play a leading role in the drawing. Items include various steaks, including rib eyes, tenderloins, New York strips, and T-bones, as well as pork chops, pork steak, pork loins, ham, and bacon. Tickets will be sold and approximately 30 pounds of meat will be awarded to each winner throughout the afternoon.

Live music will get underway later in the afternoon when popular local musicians Dan Morin of Mule Train, Bob Hostettler of Bad Ax Rodeo, and former City Limits lead singer Chris Champagne take the stage along with some of their friends. There will be no cover charge and 50/50 drawings will be held.

In addition, food and refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon and evening and will feature hamburgers, brats, hot dogs, and chili.
