Huntington Athletics Applauds Outback's Generosity
The 44th annual Blue Devil senior athletic awards banquet at Huntington High School, which honored 89 graduating senior athletes, featured a taste of Australia, compliments of the Outback Steakhouse located in the Big H Shopping Center. Outback helped underwrite the evening, donating its time and services in feeding a crowd of about 250 attendees.
Huntington District Director of Athletics Georgia McCarthy thanked local Outback staff. The group cooked the food on site. The menu included steak, chicken, potatoes, salad, bread and refreshments. Coffee and cookies were available for dessert.
"We sincerely appreciate Outback's continued interest and support of our schools and students," Mrs. McCarthy said. "We certainly enjoy having Outback so close to our school and community. It's where many of our coaches and family meet for dinner and conversation."
Cooking food on grills right outside Louis D. Giani Gymnasium produced an appealing aroma that filtered throughout the area. Following the banquet, some coaches drove down the block to Outback to continue their celebration.
"Outback continues to be a strong supporter of Blue Devil athletics," Mrs. McCarthy said. Several teams have held their end-of-season party at the restaurant.
