A couple of months ago, we became aware of a tough situation that a friend of one our church members was going through. My wife and I donated BBQ to a fundraising event by way of a silent auction item called “BBQ Feast for 20 People”. Apparently the item was popular and brought a sizeable donation.
This weekend, it was time to honor my end of the deal and cook for the auction winner who was hosting a party. I had committed to ribs, pulled pork, and pit beans for the event. So I was up early and cooking for a 6:00pm delivery time.
In the meantime, I had become aware of a couple of families who’d lost loved ones or were otherwise going through a rough patch. So with plenty of room to spare on the cooker and blessed with the means, we set about making food one less thing for some of these folks to worry about.
I’ve said this before; I don’t compete or cater. But I do get some personal satisfaction from seeing others enjoy the results. This is compounded further when I can help someone who needs a little “BBQ Pick-me-Up”.
Thanks to my friends and family for the assitane this weekend. I’m always ready to “Que-for-a-Cause”.
