Gentlemen, I want to report that the first annual “BBQ for the Boys” was a huge success. First, we raised more than $2,100 and, thanks to some special generosity, the entire amount will go directly to the Scouting programs. Second, dozens of you made the fundraiser possible, so I want to express my gratitude to you.
Special thanks goes to Ed Byrd, Wesley Peel, and Ty McAlister for providing their cookers, operating them all night, and coordinating everything. Big thanks goes to the rest of the “Strength” leadership team for their planning, and also to the many of you who either sold tickets, or helped cut and store the meat, or distributed orders to the customers. Tim Scott even lent us the use of his “Buffalo Buster” to make life much easier.
For everybody out there who bought some pig and helped spread the word, thank you!
And, last but not least, be on the lookout for the return of the pig next year, as we look forward to the 2nd Annual BBQ for the Boys in 2015.
