Who doesn't enjoy a hearty meal, delicious drinks, and rousing entertainment in the company of good friends? Tie those easily embraceable things together and throw "supporting a good cause" into the mix, and you have an upcoming fundraiser at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds you won't want to miss!

The Dubuque County Fairgrounds' annual Blue Ribbon Fundraiser is quickly approaching. Set to take place on Saturday, February 25th, 2023 a delicious prime rib dinner will be the centerpiece of an evening of laughs, charity, and good times as the community comes together to support the Fairgrounds.

This year, money raised at the Blue Ribbon Fundraiser will go towards a new ballroom roof. Construction on the new roof is planned for spring 2023, but the process will surely be aided by the generosity from people in Dubuque and the Tri-States.

The Blue Ribbon Fundraiser is set to commence with a happy hour at 5pm (with free keg beer thanks to the event's sponsors), followed by Daryl Biechler's prime rib dinner at 6:30pm. An hour later, an auction and awards ceremony will be held. Comedian Doug Thompson will provide the laughs following the auction and awards ceremony.

Tickets for the Blue Ribbon Fundraiser are on sale now. You can stop by the Dubuque County Fairgrounds to purchase a ticket for $70. Each ticket includes three drink tickets.

An event like this doesn't happen without some great sponsors, including Jerry's Tractor and Small Engine Repair in Holy Cross, IA and Biechler Electric Inc. in Dubuque.

The Dubuque County Fairgrounds' Blue Ribbon Fundraiser will take place Saturday, February 25th, beginning at 5pm. More information is available on the Fairgrounds' website.
