Here is the as-promised-follow-up to what has become the finest culinary event in Central Minnesota, the Lutgen Companies' annual "Cookout for a Cause"!

The weather was perfect, the crowd was hungry - and generous - and the brats/hot dogs were exemplary!

It all adds up to a great day of giving, and to $17,000.00 directed by donors to their specific charities of choice.

Check out the photos, and we'll see you next year!
