Food Aid BBQ

It’s BBQ Season!

To help raise money for our Food Aid program, we hold an annual BBQ. There’s no better way to raise money for a program that supplies beef to people in need than selling burgers from The Works – grilled up BY The Works!
Because of you, in 2018 we were able raise an incredible $58,162!
Rural businesses will once again be on hand to showcase their products, services, and events during the Mayor’s Rural Expo both inside Jean Pigott Hall and outside in Marion Dewar Plaza.
When: Friday, June 7 with The Works BBQ from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Where: City Hall front lawn (Marion Dewar Plaza)
What: A day of fun including:

  • BBQ with delicious hamburgers from THE WORKS ($10 gets you a burger, chips, and a drink)
  • Mayor’s Rural Expo
  • Animals
  • LIVE entertainment all day

Tickets: Buy your tickets for a Works Gourmet Burger on site for $10
