BBQ plates will be sold starting at 11:00 am and continue until 5:00 pm, though in past years they have sold out before 5:00. Over 4,000 pounds of beef have been donated for this year’s fundraiser. Benefiting from the fundraiser will be; Reserve Deputies, the Aero Squadron, Sheriff’s Activity League, Sheriff Explorers, Search and Rescue and the Sheriff’s Posse. $8.00 tickets are being sold throughout the Valley.
