Coming up on Saturday, March 25, Oakdale Aquatics will host its annual Tri Tip Dinner and Auction fundraiser at the FES Hall in Oakdale. Doors open at 5 p.m.
Medlen’s House of Beef will cater the tri tip and chicken dinner. Beer from local breweries and wine will also be available for purchase. There will be silent and live auction items up for bid. This will include a dessert auction where the swimmers that are part of the program prepare the homemade treats.
Tickets are available at: www.OakdaleAquatics.com. Tickets are $60 per person or a table of eight for $530. (The reserved table includes eight drink tickets.) The proceeds from the dinner, and auction will support coaching labor, pool rental and ongoing coach training.
For the past 50 years, Oakdale Aquatics has operated a summer swim program for Oakdale’s youth. Many lifetime friendships have been forged at the pool along with discipline and athletic skills. The program has grown to include: a seasonal youth swim program, a year-round youth swim program, a youth water polo program and an adult masters swim program. Currently, over 170 youth participate in Oakdale Aquatics programs.
Sign-ups for the spring/summer season are already open at: www.OakdaleAquatics.com.
