 Cookout for a Cause


In 2010 the "Cookout for a Cause" was born.  With a company goal of "Building A Better Community" John Lutgen and his team sat down to brainstorm how they could give back to the community. What they came up with was a cook out to raise money for various charities and organizations throughout the community. 

With help from Ace Hardware, First Fuel Bank, Allied Building Products, Matthew Hall Lumber, Bernicks, and Von Hanson's meats they invited the community to a cookout, hosted at the Ace Hardware on Veterans Drive. Members of the community came down to grab some food, as well as to donate. All donations were matched by Lutgen Companies, and the proceeds from the food was divided among the various organizations. Lutgen Companies matched all of the money raised at the cookout and ended up donating over $4,200.00 to local organizations!

Due to the huge success of the 1st cookout John and his team hosted a cookout again in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Over $38,000 was donated to local organizations and charities!
