Black Tie & Burgers

Black Tie & Burgers Logo

Thank you to everyone who celebrated the 8th annual Black Tie & Burgers fundraiser on Saturday, October 8. Thank to our hosts Dr. Richard Diehl and Kathy Diehl, who delivered a great time and excellent burgers for our guests. It was an event—and an opportunity to help community kids—not to be missed. We raised more than $230,000 for the programs and activities that help our kids build self-confidence, develop character and acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become caring, compassionate adults.

The 9th Annual Black Tie & Burgers — celebrating our 80th Anniversary — will be held in the fall of 2017.  If you would like to be added to the invitation mailing list and/or receive sponsorship information, please contact Elehna Robinson at
