SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Baesler’s Market hosted a ribeye cookout last week to raise funds for the City of Sullivan Community Pool’s revitalization efforts.
Community members gathered together, along with Sullivan Mayor Clint Lamb, to serve over 300 ribeye steak sandwiches. In total, the event raised $1,500, according to a news release.
“We were so happy to have had the opportunity to host an event benefiting the community, and we’re excited to see Sullivan City reach their goal,” Kristine O’Hare, Marketing Communications Manager at Baesler’s Market, said.
After the original closed over two years ago, the City of Sullivan officially broke ground on a new pool on Aug. 19 with plans to reopen in Spring 2022. Efforts to raise money for the pool remain ongoing.
Lamb said he was pleased to see the cookout’s success and encouraged those interested to get involved in future fundraising efforts for the pool.
“I hope the fundraiser at Baesler’s, and the other fundraisers taking place around town, will motivate the community to want to be a part of the events we’re having to raise money for the revitalized city pool,” Lamb said. “Whether it’s a $150 contribution or a $15,000 contribution, we are grateful for all efforts. This revitalization is truly going to serve us all.”
