The World’s Largest Meat Tray Makes a Monumental Return for a Second Year at Casino Beef Week

 

In a celebration of community spirit, culinary excellence, and agricultural pride, the much-anticipated return of the World’s Largest Meat Tray is officially announced, set to be a highlight of this year’s Casino Beef Week. After last year’s overwhelming success, the event is back, promising to be bigger, better, and meatier, all in support of local industries and community festivities.

Generous Contributions from Local Businesses

This extraordinary raffle prize, renowned for being the largest of its kind, is made possible through the generous contributions of Smith’s Butchery and Oatens, both pillars of the Casino community. Smith’s Butchery, a name synonymous with quality and tradition, will supply a vast assortment of meats, ensuring the tray is brimming with the finest cuts of beef, pork, and poultry. Complementing this cornucopia of meats, Oatens will provide a state-of-the-art chest freezer, ensuring the lucky winner can store this bounty with ease.

A Tradition of Giving Back

The World’s Largest Meat Tray raffle is not just a testament to the region’s rich agricultural heritage; it’s a means of giving back to the community that has supported Casino Beef Week for over four decades. “We’re thrilled to offer this incredible prize for the second year running,” says Jacob Stone, event coordinator. “It’s a fun, engaging way to support local businesses and celebrate the spirit of Casino. We couldn’t have done it without the generous support of Smith’s Butchery and Oatens.”

A Word from the President

Brody Lisha, President of Beef Week, expressed his excitement about the event’s return, stating, “Seeing the community come together for Beef Week is always a highlight of the year, and the World’s Largest Meat Tray raffle has quickly become a beloved tradition. It symbolizes not only the strength and quality of our local agriculture but also the incredible community spirit that makes Casino such a special place. We are proud to showcase our region’s produce and thank our local businesses for their generous support.”
