The Chadron State College Rodeo hosted its annual Black Tie Calf Fry Saturday at the Dawes County Fairgrounds.

The event included a silent auction, a live auction and dinner donated by Feik’s 120 Bar and Restaurant.

Dinner included Rocky Mountain oysters and barbecue beef sandwiches as entrees with various side dishes. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages were provided.

Darrell Kraupie, of Kraupie’s Real Estate Auctioneers in Bridgeport, ran the live auction.

Both auctions included 70 items that the club members collected as donations from family members, friends, and selves.

Each member of the team was required to collect at least three items for the auction.

Head Coach Dustin Luper said that this event was one of the biggest opportunities for the team to raise money.

“We’re expecting a turn-out close to 250-300 people tonight,” Luper said. “Everyone’s welcome to grab some food and bid on whatever they want.”

Each team member was also responsible for selling 10 tickets to people planning on attending the event. Tickets were also sold at the door.

The event raised funds for common team expenses such as traveling and practice supplies.
