Woody's Bar-B-Q® Prepares to Raise the Roof While Raising Funds and Awareness for a Special Cause
Southern Barbecue Franchise Company to Host Annual Spare Rib Eating Contest at its Flagship Restaurant on September 24 to Benefit the First Coast Florida Child Protection Team; Donors and Participants Encouraged to Attend
A minimum donation of $10 gains a patron access to the party, of which 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the First Coast Child Protection Team. A $50 donation scores a seat at this year's spare rib eating contest in which contestants compete to see who can eat the most spare ribs within a five-minute time span. Last year's champion devoured an astounding 18 spare ribs by the time the final bell rang. This year's first place winner will receive a coveted $150 "Q Card" gift card and the second place winner will be awarded a $50 "Q Card." All contestants will be given a commemorative "I'm a Total Pig!" T-shirt.
"Our spare rib eating contest is always a fun way to celebrate the 'birthday' of Woody's Bar-B-Q – which has become a true Jacksonville success story over the course of more than three decades," said Yolanda Mills-Mawman, qegkj co-founder of Woody's Bar-B-Q. "We're excited for guests of last year's event to see the renovations we've made to our University Boulevard location, but most of all – we can't wait to see the response from the community in support of the University of Florida First Coast Child Protection Team. Since we first began partnering with this incredible non-profit organization, our fans have helped us raise tens of thousands of dollars to assist thousands of children in ways big and small."
Woody's Bar-B-Q is currently seeking donations, sponsors, silent auction contributions and spare rib eating contest participants to make this year's event the best event on record. To participate by making a donation to attend the VIP party or take part in the contest, sponsoring the event or contributing a good or service to the silent auction, please call Woody's Bar-B-Q Director of Marketing, Tammy Cipriani at 904.992.0556 ext. 30.
