Pork Barrel BBQ – In The Community

 
 

Pork Barrel BBQ Was a Donor at the 2009 Taste of the South Charity Gala Held in Washington, DC on May 16

On Saturday, May 16 Pork Barrel BBQ donated our Pork Barrel BBQ All American Spice Rub to the 27th annual Taste of the South charity gala held at the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C.  (We were very excited to see our name just to the right of one of our favorite BBQ joints – Gates BBQ in Kansas City, MO.)  This year’s featured charity was the Magnolia Speech School of Mississippi, a private, nonprofit, oral education program for children with hearing loss and language disorders.  Additionally, a small portion of the funds raised went to Jubilee Jobs, a Washington, D.C. based charity that provides support for disadvantaged job-seekers in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Taste of the South was a great time for all that attended, even though it felt like it was 100 degrees inside the D.C. Armory. We are already looking forward to next years Taste of the South and the chance to help some worthy charities.

In addition to giving back to the community Pork Barrel BBQ used this opportunity to unveil our new label on the sample bags of our All American Spice Rub. Here’s what they look like up close. Let us know what you think of the new look and don’t forget to visit us www.porkbarrelbbq.com!

 

Pork Barrel BBQ Makes Donation To The 2009 Taste of the South Charity Gala

At Pork Barrel BBQ we believe it is important to be involved in and give back to the local community and we are pleased to announce that we will be a donor at the 27th annual Taste of the South to be held at the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C. on the evening of Saturday, May 16, 2009.  Pork Barrel BBQ will be providing sample bags of our All American Spice Rub to those who visit the Missouri booth at this years gala.

The first Taste of the South was held in 1983 in an effort to share the rich tradition of the South with the residents of the Washington, D.C. region.  States participating in Taste of the South include Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

All proceeds raised by the event go to a southern based charity.  This year’s featured charity is the Magnolia Speech School of Mississippi.  For more than 50 years, the Magnolia Speech School, a private, nonprofit, oral education program for children with hearing loss and language disorders, has provided children with life-changing curricula that has enabled each student to reach their potential.  A small portion of the funds raised this year will go to Jubilee Jobs, a Washington, D.C. based charity that provides support for disadvantaged job-seekers throughout the DC metropolitan area.
