Smokin’ meats and firefighters: Could you even ask for more?

Come and support your local firefighters on Friday, Dec. 30 as they fire up the smoker and cook up some delicious BBQ.
For a $20 donation per plate, you’ll have the option of a half rack of slow-smoked ribs or a heaping portion of mouth-watering pulled pork, both coming complete with two sides, a drink and a roll.
Food will be served starting at 11:30 a.m. and serving will continue until the food runs out.
You can grab your food to go, or you can sit down and enjoy the station, as we will have our doors open and the fire apparatus on display. Feel free to check out the trucks and ask any questions you may have. We had a fantastic turnout last year, and we hope to see even more people this year. All proceeds will benefit the Boca Grande Firefighters Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The Boca Grande Firefighters Association operates a benevolent fund to assist firefighters and their families in times of illness or need. Additionally, the firefighters are working to develop an annual scholarship program for hard-working high school seniors. The Association greatly appreciates your support, and donations are always welcome!
