MARQUETTE — It was another round of Sam versus Food this past weekend and this time it was for a special cause as the Steinhaus Market in Marquette was hosting a special fundraiser.
The event was to benefit the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter as patrons were treated a full plate of Steinhaus food, including pulled pork, smoked chicken and other tasty sides.
All of the proceeds went to UPAWS, who get a lot of help from the community to keep their services available to local animal lovers.
#SamVsFood is live from Steinhaus Market for Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter's BBQ Sunday fundraiser. Come on down until 5 p.m. Tickets are $12, and proceeds go toward UPAWS' mission of ending euthanasia of lost and stray pets in the U.P. abc10up.com/event/bbq-sunday-upaws-benefit

“We’re able to do what we do based solely on the donations from the community,” said Amber Wetton, Fundraiser Committee Chair. “When local restaurants like this, or local businesses decide to give back, it really just shows how awesome our community is and how much they really can do. We have a 98% save rate. That’s because of the community we have that really supports us throughout the year,” said Wetton.
Sam’s challenge was to eat a pound of smoked chicken, with a quarter pound each of coleslaw and potato salad.
