Default 2019 Veterans BBQ Fundraiser

Its time once again for our big VA cook in Milwaukee. This year we plan to cook for around 1500 vets! This looks to be a huge event, and we could really use some help from the brethren.

Guys, the overhead for this event is pretty big. Meats, breads, drinks, plates, forks, napkins, foil, pans, sauces, rubs, sides, etc. The list is a mile long. Sirporkalot has graciously donated Q salt from Naturiffic for the chicken. Steph at Simply Marvelous has donated Spicy Apple for the butts, and Big Poppa is donating Granny's BBQ Sauce for the ribs. Woodmark from Milwaukee is donating the hickory. That leaves a LOT that we still need. Mainly MONEY!

These cooks have really grown quickly. So quickly, in fact, OIFMarine started a 501(c)(3) for us so that we could more easily solicit donations from larger companies. You can check out our charity here - www.midwestbbqoutreach.com Guys, we could really use some help with funds for this cook. OIFMarine, ChicagoKP, and I are banging on doors and begging for cash all the live long day, but we're not quite where we need to be. Any help would be great appreciated! If we over raise, the money will be used to make this an even better event. If we REALLY over raise, it just gives us a leg up on the next event.

Also, if you have a business or if your employer would like to be a sponsor, please let me know. That's why we did the whole 501 thing! Fully tax deductible and we have a sign sponsor, so your business will get promotion during the event.

You can donate here -

Here's a thread about last year's event.

Thank you all for your continued support of our veterans. We couldn't do all this without the continued support of the brethren.

It will be my pleasure to help you out with this very worthy cause. And I ask that any brethren that can help out with any amount to please consider doing so. We are 90,000+ strong. A couple of bucks from the majority will go a long way.

As someone who is always cautious about donating to charities, can you speak to how the money being raised will be utilized? How much of donations is going towards administrative costs?

There are no administrative costs. Every penny goes to vets. Chris, Kirk and I do this in our free time. The three of us are the charity. The equipment we use, we own. We bought it or it was donated. We have spent thousands out of our own pocket to help make this happen, and we will never take a dime for ourselves. Our entire help staff for the event is 100% volunteer as well. ALL donations go directly to the things we need for the event itself. Food, plates, drinks, forks, reefer truck, ice, etc, but never a dime toward admins.

Outstanding, thanks for the quick response. I'll make a donation this afternoon and try to get all my vet buddies involved as well. Glad you guys are doing things the correct way and I appreciate all your hard work.
