Colts Receive $10,000 Grant From Dubuque Racing Association

| |

When the Dubuque Racing Association announced their grant awards to local nonprofit organizations this year, the Colts Youth Organization was pleased to learn it received $10,000 for the purchase of a kitchen trailer for the Colt Cadets. This was the 20th consecutive year that the Colts received a grant of $5,000 or more from the DRA.

This trailer, now affectionately known as the “Chuck Wagon,” transformed the way the Colt Cadets parents and volunteers were able to prepare, cook and serve the drum corps throughout the summer. In total, the Colt Cadets prepare an average of 400 meals per day during their 45-day tour. The new trailer is outfitted with one fridge and two freezers and has space to store dry goods, a rolling can rack, and a rolling convection oven set-up. The entire trailer can be powered through an extension cord.
