Elimination dinner pushes SYCC campaign over $230,000 mark

BUCKHANNON — Friday night’s elimination dinner to benefit the Stockert Youth and Community Center’s gymnasium/multi-use facility expansion project scared up about $10,000, according to early estimates.

Mayor David McCauley, pictured below carving the roast beef, estimated the capital campaign has amassed about $235,000 following Friday’s dinner and Buckhannon Toyota’s $20,000 donation to the initiative.

Below are a few scenes from the event, which got underway at 5 p.m. at the Event Center at Brushy Fork.

Mayor David McCauley didn’t hesitate to strap on his apron and slice up Friday’s featured dish — roast beef provided by CJ Rylands of CJ Maggie’s Restaurant.

Magistrate clerk Angie Brady and county commissioner Troy “Buddy” Brady, who’s also a member of the SYCC board of directors, smile as they wait for dinner to to be served up and the elimination process to get underway.
The band Delora Brown and Backcountry Rox supplied the background music for Friday’s elimination dinner. They played a variety of recognizable hits like Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man,” Poison’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and more.
