Steak Dinner at Artichoke

Arrowhead and Cherokee Yacht Clubs and The Quarterdeck at Tera Miranda are all lakefront restaurants on Grand Lake that can be reached by boat – just adding to the dining experience!

As usual, the Taste of Grand was a great success, with well over 500 tickets sold to the event and close to $70,000 raised for the Integris Grove Hospital Foundation.

This year’s event also included the cooperation of REC employees, who held their annual REC Day at the Grove Civic Center earlier in the day and then helped hustle and transform the Civic Center into the elegant setting for the Taste of Grand.

This is a great example of the cooperation of area organizations in working together to put on events, help great causes and support the entire Grand Lake area.
