37th ANNUAL BBQ & WESTERN CANCELED
Based on guidelines from national, state, and local authorities regarding social gatherings during this COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel this year's 37th Annual BBQ & Western, which was currently rescheduled for June 6th. This was a very difficult decision for our team as this is the first time in 37 years that the BBQ & Western will not take place. Additionally, this event has a huge impact on our organization and those we serve as it typically raises a fifth of our annual operating budget. And, we are losing our opportunity to enjoy fun, food, and fellowship with you at this time. But, we know this is the right and responsible thing to do for our community and for all of our health and safety.
Saddle up, put on your boots and mosey on over for a hootin’ and hollerin’ good time at the 37th Annual BBQ & Western! Come out and grub on BBQ and fixin’s, enjoy some country tunes, bid at the silent auction, and try your luck in the reverse drawing and with some classic Old West gambling games including poker, blackjack and Texas hold’em. All proceeds from this event support our sight-saving services that benefit more than 46,000 children and adults in Northeast Florida annually.
