WINDTHORST, TX (KAUZ) -

Hundreds made their way to Windthorst Sunday afternoon for the 69th annual German Sausage Meal held by the Knights of Columbus. 

Organizers said 2,700 lbs of sausage was prepped for this year's event. 

Money raised goes to the Knights of Columbus, who in turn gives that money to local charities. 

"It pretty much just helps us help the community in any way, shape or form. We don't have any specific groups that we give to or don't give to. Anybody that can use help we are more than happy to help out," Brad Wolf with the Knights of Columbus said. 

An organization that receives a helping hand by the Knights of Columbus is the Catholic Daughters of the Americas in Windthorst. 

Regent, Jean Berend said they host a bake sale separate from the sausage meal to help raise funds for their own charitable work. 

"Knights of Columbus have always been generous to allow us as catholic daughters to come in and have a little section for our bake sale. The money raised here at our bake sale helps with the local charities that we provide for," Berend said. 

That includes many local organizations. 

"It allows us to do our nursing home visits, help the youth in the community and various other organizations (like) Habitat for Humanity. It helps a lot," officer Krista Veith said. 

Hundreds traveled from across Texoma to enjoy a hot plate or take some sausage to go. All the full bellies are going to help those in need.

Knights of Columbus hoped to raise $10,000 during Sunday's fundraiser. A final total will not be ready until Monday.
