Orchel Krier will be cooking the steaks for alumni and friends of TC on Oct. 17

The Taft College Foundation will host its fourth annual Alumni and Friends Cougar Rib-Eye Cookout on Oct. 17 in the quad area on the Taft College campus.
The evening begins with a social hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m with dinner service beginning at approximately 6 p.m. and continuing until 8 p.m.
The evening will include formal presentation of colors and flag salute, live music by the band "Blackboard Playboys," from Trout's of Bakersfield, a couple of surprises, a raffle for all ticket holders to win a $300 gift card from Chevron Valley Credit Union, and of course fabulous rib-eye steak prepared by caterer Orchel Krier of the Tumbleweed Café & Bar.
The dinner menu includes steaks, salad, beans, bread, and ice cream for dessert.
Beverages will be available for sale, including beer and wine, as well as sodas.
Water will be complimentary.
As with last year, a special feature of the evening will be a salute to our local veterans, who will be our special guests for the evening.
There will be 150 tickets available to veterans and their spouses on a first come first serve basis.
This year's cookout will be a special occasion because the Taft College Dental Hygiene School will celebrate its 20th anniversary.
