The meatballs will be judged on taste, texture, and appearance.

The event is $20 a person for anyone who wants to attend and includes all you can eat and drink.

There will also be live entertainment, a 50-50, a raffle table, and door prizes from 9:00pm until Midnight.

All the proceeds from the event benefit the William "Babe" Conroy Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The scholarship is awarded to a Senior Shenandoah Valley Baseball Player who has played all 4 years and will be continuing their education in college or technical school.
