We were ambitious for this year’s 2017 BBQ and Blues event. By Saturday, May 20th, we were prepared to break records for the 20th annual event, honor the memory of Harold McAbee, and celebrate the exceptional efforts of all the years of fine barbecue from the McAbee Pigfitters.
Then the wind started blowing.
After the tent crashed, you, our sponsors, stayed right there with us. You showed up in t-shirts and jeans, ready to clean up the mess, you got on the phone to help get the word out, and over the next week, you helped our eBay auction prices reach all our goals and far surpass our expectations.
Because of you, we are thankful and proud to share that “BBQ and Blues 2017” will make its largest contribution ever, just over $131,000, to The DCH Foundation’s Help and Hope Fund.
To date, this event has raised more than $1.5 Million for patients in need who are being treated at the Manderson Cancer Center.
Because of you, our friends and neighbors can battle their cancer with abundant hope knowing they have your generous support along the way. We thank each of you on their behalf.
