The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, April 28. This week, Racine County Eye reporter Emma Widmar discussed various community happenings around Racine County with TMJ4 anchors Carole Meekins and Ryan Jenkins.
1. Food Truck Adventure sells out
Case High School’s culinary students hosted a Food Truck Adventure on April 26. The event showcased the students’ creativity while also helping the Eagles complete their senior capstone project.
During the segment, Widmar shared that ahead of the event, 275 tickets were sold, making the event a sell-out.
2. Black Restaurant Week
Next up, the Racine Roundup encouraged viewers to participate in Black Restaurant Week.
Widmar explained the importance of supporting Black-owned businesses and their positive impact on the community.
A list of 15 eateries is available on the Racine County Eye. Have a spot to feature? Email email@example.com to be added.
3. Men’s Wearhouse donates prom suit rental
Lastly, the Racine County Eye reported on Men’s Wearhouse and the generous donation of waiving the cost of suit rental for five students with disabilities.
Instead of worrying about affording a suit, which Widmar let viewers know could cost as much as $250 for the night, these five students will be looking dapper and will only have to focus on having fun on the dance floor. Men’s Wearhouse wants them to have the ultimate prom experience.
