NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - An episode of "Top Chef" sparked an idea for a unique fundraiser in Nacogdoches. It's called a beefsteak dinner.
"It's a really fun event. We have a dinner. It's comprised of just meat, bread, and beer," said Jessica Sowell, Nacogdoches' assistant historic sites manager. "Everything is served family style at your tables. It's designed do you can eat everything with your hand. No plates or napkins. No forks. So it's a lot of fun where we want people to cut loose, but also realize we're raising money for a really great cause."
And that good cause, of course, would be the Zion Hill Baptist Church, which was established back in 1914.
The Beefsteak Dinner is Oct. 21 at Mast Hall on Main Street. Tickets can be purchased at several sites around town, including M&S Pharmacy and the Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau.
