We only have one seat left for the class and then we will be sold out.
Don't have any real numbers, but I can safely say we will be raising over $20,000 for cancer research just from this class. I do know that number will grow larger because I am over estimating expenses.
So for those that are coming and for those that have donated product to the class, I personally want to thank you. We'll give props to the fine companies that have donated product after the class.
On a personal level. When I started this 501c(3) seven years ago, I never dreamed that we would be able to do this kind of work for cancer research. It amazes me the passion that others have with this deadly disease. Cancer and dealing with cancer truly effect us all in our little BBQ community and outside our community. We have BBQ Cooks, like Rod Anderson out of Iowa who have to deal with cancer as a daily ritual. That is why I do it. I do it so that kids in the future won't have to deal with a loss of a parent like my girls did with their mommy. Kids shouldn't have to grow up without a parent, espeically young one's.
The uniting of people never ceases to amaze me in our BBQ community. We also have support from the KCBS and for that I am forever grateful. So to the Directors of KCBS and to Carolyn, thank you for believing in me. You all know how much this means to me and to others in our great Society.
Thanks to all.
