Mohegan Lake, NY – Augie’s Prime Cuts’ owners, Audrey Hochroth and Sal Barone have successfully raised a total of $45,000 in an annual fundraising event held recently at Captain Lawrence Brewery in Elmsford. The fourth annual event hosted by the New York steakhouse was aimed at raising funds for the Autism Speaks charity as well as a local organization called Community Based Services (CBS).

Audrey and Sal decided to hold the fundraiser for Autism Speaks each year as a means to help children who are in the same condition as their child, Niki, who was diagnosed with autism at a young age.

Augie’s Prime Cuts’ owners regard this year’s fundraiser as even more successful than the previous ones, as more members of the community were involved in the recently held event. Guests were entertained with a performance from a local rock band called Thornwoods, who donated their time to the fundraiser.

A silent auction was held to raise funds for the charities at the event, where various items like jewelry, sports memorabilia, gift certificates, as well as hair and spa products were auctioned off.

The owners of Augie’s Prime Cuts were very thankful for those who took part in making the fundraiser successful. Audrey Hochroth told:

“This event means a lot to me and all of us at Augie’s appreciate the continued support from our neighboring local businesses, loyal customers, family and friends. We are happy to do something good – and even have some fun while we’re at it.”
