The Sidney Eagle Foundation had its beginning in 2001 with its first major project, bleachers and the announcer’s booth at Swanson Field. Since that time, the Eagle Foundation has continued to help fund numerous K-12 school projects through fund raising and with generous giving from our school community. A project that remains unrealized is the construction of a Concessions area and Restroom Facility on the northside of Swanson Field. This facility serves the community as well as area schools for hosting of district/divisional track meets and other community events.

At present, the Foundation has approximately $30,623.35 raised and set aside for this project and this year, the Eagle Foundation is kicking-off a campaign with our corporate sponsor, Mid-Rivers Communication to see this projected completed. Interstate Engineering of Sidney has provided the Foundation with an estimated cost of $187,000.

The kick-off event is “Meat Madness” and will be held Saturday, November 18th at the Event Center. Meat Madness is a spin on the turn of the century beef-steak events that involved a lot of meat and bread and of course, No Fork, No Knives and No Spoons. Through the support of our primary sponsor, Mid-Rivers Communications, you will be provided with a dinner that includes beef, chicken, pork and potatoes, veggies and dessert for a mere $40 per person with all proceeds going toward the project.

The event will begin at 6:00 PM with a social hour and dinner to begin at 6:30 PM. Included in the evening is live music provided by Stumbling Free of Helena, Montana and both live and silent auctions. The live auction will include ½ a beef, cut and wrapped donated by Steinbeisser Farms, diamond stud earrings from John Stockhill Jewelers, a Henry Golden Boy 22 donated by DTF Educational Consulting in cooperation with High Caliber Sports, a 70 quart Pelican Cooler, a reclaimed wood and tin bar, and a week stay at a beautiful condominium at Whitefish Mountain. The silent auction will contain a variety of items donated by local business.

Come join Mid-Rivers Communications and the Eagle Foundation on November 18th for a great evening of dining, dancing and fun for a great cause. Tickets can be obtained at Stockman Bank, Central School, the Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture, and John Stockhill Jewelers. Join in the Madness on November 18, 2017.
