• Steak Fry in the Country

    Steak Fry Celebrates the 36th Annual Steak Fry in the Country, supporting Ag Education on Thursday, August 5 at 5:30pm. The Steak Fry will be held at Ted Jacobs Farm in Rock Falls. This annual event, sponsored by the SVACC, allows the Agri-Business community to gather and celebrate Ag in the Sauk Valley while raising money for Ag related scholarships. This year, 10 scholarships were awarded totaling $11,250.

    Tom Despasquale will provide musical entertainment during the 36th annual Steak Fry. In addition, the now famous dessert auction will continue to feature desserts made by Agri-Business Committee members. During the event the SVACC will recognize the 2021 scholarship recipients. Which include: Molly Biggs, Michelle Cooney, Brett Burhow, Emily Brooks, Stephanie Gripp, Alyssa Miller, Jacob Kolb, Keegan Coulthard, Sierra Harris, Shelby Harris, and Shelby Hardy

    The Steak Fry in the Country is an opportunity for SVACC members, agri-businesses, farmers, and others to come together to raise money for scholarships, discuss agricultural issues and enjoy an evening of networking over a steak dinner. Money raised from the Steak Fry helps provide future ag scholarships, as well as funds donated to support other Ag related education programs such as Ag in the Classroom and Whiteside County 4H Program.

    This event is open to the public. Tickets are $25.00 and are available at the Sauk Valley Area Chamber office located at 211 Locust Street in Sterling, from a member of the Chamber’s agri-business committee, or may be purchased here.
