Enjoy delicious food, listen to sweet Blues music and taste a wide range of craft beers at the Beer, Blues and BBQ Reception. Purdue's HTM 492 students, with award winning Chefs Lulay and Conway, will prepare BBQ styled foods that will be paired in People's Brew Co. draft stations. This reception will have musical performances by Queen Delphine and the Crown Jewels. The cost is $50 per person (plus) tax. Space is limited so we encourage calling the JPR reservation hotline to guarantee entry at 765-494-6845. Work off all the calories from Friday night's event the next day at the Right Steps Run at Prophetstown State Park. Right Steps Run is a 5K Run/Walk /10K on Saturday, April 11, at 9 a.m. at Prophetstown State Park. Not only will you burn calories but you can feel good about knowing 100% of the profits will help families afford high quality child care, in support of Right Steps Child Development Centers' mission to provide and advocate for quality child care and early education. Right Steps Run is a family friendly event. Feel free to bring the children. Children under 16 who do not want to be timed, do not need to register.
