SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The 18th annual Steak & Steak dinner benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Springfield will be next Tuesday.

And the featured speaker is Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino.

Back in 1996, Pitino led Kentucky to its championship.

And then in 2013, he led the Louisville Cardinals to the NCAA title.

The Steak & Steak dinner raises money for the Boys and Girls Club in Springfield.

More than 3,000 kids take part in the club each year at three different locations around Springfield.

And construction on a fourth unit will begin soon.
