Beef O Brady's is helping us raise money for our Annual Giving Campaign. When you eat at Beef's the week of Jan 25th....let your waitress know you are there to support GAES. Ask to sit In the booth to support! If it is occupied then ask for your bill to be added into the fundraiser. We will earn a percentage of total sales for that week.
