"It's kind of a team building thing, but the best part about it is you have a chance to help others, and I think that the biggest part of the team building,” said Union head coach Rick Bennett.

“It's nice we get to come every year,” added junior Cole Maier. “It's the third year for us now that we've been here, and everybody enjoys it.”

The Dutchmen have been participating in this dinner for 13 years.
