Q For A Cure

On October 26, 2014, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, we will be hosting a huge fundraiser called ‘Q For A Cure.  All proceeds from this event will be donated to two major breast cancer support foundations in the Alamance and Guilford county areas, Little Pink Houses of Hope and The Alight Foundation.  
Some planned events for this fundraiser include a BBQ Chicken Plate sale, which we will be serving fresh out of our competition smoker in the parking lot.  We are also having a silent auction, raffles, inflatables for the kids, monster trucks, including One Bad Chad, fire trucks, and a bunch of vendors from the community who have all agreed to donate 100% of their proceeds for the day to these wonderful foundations as well. 

There will be plenty of excitement and it's a great opportunity to raise a lot of money that will stay right here in the Triad.  You can visit our Facebook page to see more details on the event, and also our website, where we have honored the two ladies who founded these charities as our Hometown Heroes of the month.
