YAP Cookout

YAP 3Every year we raise money to help send a group of Southside area 5th grade safety patrols on their annual trip to Washington D.C.  In partnership with one school we hold a charity BBQ.  The patrols, parents, and sponsors at the school sell tickets for BBQ dinners weeks in advance of the cookout while the committee at SBMC recruits sponsors to support the event.  In the meantime our committee coordinates with our partners at Bono’s BBQ who supply the chicken and other food which we cook on location and package for pick up.  The patrols also work with us side-by-side on the day of the BBQ.  Additionally they join us at our weekly luncheon the day before the BBQ where we usually try and arrange a special guest who caters to them as the audience.
