Grand Island Central Catholic, Grand Island Senior High and Wood River High School have been busy dishing out the beef to hungry huskers for their respective booster clubs during Husker Harvest Days.
After a busy first two days people were concerned Thursday's rain would slow down production. It certainly did not.
"I can tell you this much, we've probably served over 7,000 steak sandwiches," said Sue Pirnie, volunteer for GICC. "As for hamburgers, I can't tell you an exact number. In the thousands."
The money received from sales go towards supporting a host of different causes for each school.
Grand Island's money will help to support athletics. On top of their wish list: a brand new blocking sled for their offensive linemen. Senior defensive end Nick Wenz plans on applying some lessons learned.
"There's so many people you have to be on your toes, if it gets busy it's conditioning."
"The money we get will go towards uniforms, help any kind of equipment the teachers need in the room and things like basketball or the fine arts," said Pirnie.
Volunteers for Wood River High said the funds they raised will also go towards their athletic program and that the Husker Harvest Day fundraiser is their biggest of the year.
