Woody's Bar-B-Q® Seeking "Total Pigs" for Anniversary Celebration
Classic Southern BBQ Chain to Bring Back Popular Rib Eating Contest as Part of Fundraiser to Benefit Tim Tebow Foundation's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry
By: Woody's Bar-B-Q
"We held our very first Rib Eating Contest at our original location in Jacksonville in 2008, so we're really excited to bring back this time-honored tradition among our loyal fanbase," said Yolanda Mills-Mawman, Woody's Bar-B-Q Co-Founder and President. "Our anniversary celebrations have always featured a fundraising component, benefiting everyone from the Tim Tebow Foundation and K9s for Warriors to No Kid Hungry and First Coast Florida Child Protection Team. The mission at the heart of TTF's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry really resonates with the entire Woody's Bar-B-Q team."
In hopes of raising as many funds as possible to support TTF's mission, Woody's Bar-B-Q will be collecting a participation fee of $10 from each of the participants. There will also be a silent auction at the event, so the BBQ franchise is actively seeking donations from local, regional and national businesses for attendees to bid on. 100% of the proceeds from the Rib Eating Contest, silent auction and raffle will benefit TTF's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry. Woody's will also be donating 10% of its sales from all three of its corporate locations – at 1638 University Blvd S in Jacksonville, 226 Solana Road in Ponte Vedra Beach and 1301 N Orange Avenue in Green Cove Springs – on the day of the Anniversary Celebration. Anyone interested in sponsoring the event or donating an item or service for the raffle or silent auction is invited to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Aspiring contestants in the Rib Eating Contest can contact Woody's Bar-B-Q of Ponte Vedra Beach at (904) 280-1110 to have their name added to the list.
