TARS Fundraiser

Logan’s “Raise The Steaks”

Friday, October 24 from 11:00 am to closing at 11:00 pm.

The folks over at Logan’s Road House (750 Apalachee Parkway) have graciously agreed to provide TARS with an outstanding fundraising event.

First, they normally only do these events on Monday-Thursday from 4:00 pm to closing at 11:00 pm. However, due to many on our e-mail distribution list working in Tallahassee, but living in surrounding counties in Florida and Georgia, Logan’s has agreed to run this event all day, so folks can dine at lunch if they cannot do both lunch and dinner.

For each customer who dines at Logan’s on Friday, October 24 and mentions to their waiter/waitress that they are there to support TARS or the “Tallahassee Ham Club,” Logan’s will donate 15% of their meal bill (excluding bar drinks) to TARS.  If 50 or more people during the whole day tell the wait staff they are there to support TARS or the “Tallahassee Ham Club,” Logan’s will donate 20% of the meal tab (excluding bar drinks).

Your Club Officers also recommend that our normal lunch at the Golden Coral be moved to Logan’s on that Friday only, so we can garner additional numbers of diners, and, therefore, additional $$$ in donations.

Fliers for this event will be available soon.

If you have any questions, please contact Chief at KA5USN@hotmail.com
