Operation BBQ for Our Troops: Walter Reed, Wash. DC 8/15/07

Hey guys I'm a first time reader/poster here and was invited to join and make this post by Bill the Grill Guy. Thanks.


Operation BBQ for Our Troops: Walter Reed, Wash. DC 8/15/07

Purpose: "To honor those who protect our freedoms, and their loved ones, with the hospitality of the uniquely American meal of BBQ."

Where: Walter Reed Army Medical Center

When: Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

Who: 500 Wounded Soldiers, Their Family and Care Providers

What: BBQ Food, Entertainment, Supports and LOVE!

We Need Your Support for Our Troops!

My name is Michael Hedrick and my Pit Pirate BBQ Team is working with the USO of Metropolitan Washington DC and "Operation BBQ for Our Troops" to provide an afternoon of down home BBQ for the wounded Soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. We are scheduled for Wednesday, August 15th on the grounds of the Hospital where we will bring pull behind Competition BBQ Smokers and cook on site for the Troops. We plan on providing all the food as well as all the logistics and even Entertainment and more.

We really need YOUR support as I have been told the 260 Chairs, Three Tents, Stage and Sound System could be as much as $6,000 and that's not even food yet. I am looking for donations financially as well as Products and Services.

Please Help us because these young men and women have paid such a dear price for what we enjoy everyday and they deserve to be told so face to face while holding a nice plate of American BBQ made with love. What a blessing it will be for them and for us as well.

For More Information please contact

Hey Mike. Some of the guys at my Fire Department want to donate to the Operation BBQ. I have started collecting the money and am keeping track of the names. How do you want me to get you the money eventually?

How ever you want to do it bro. You can mail me the checks, you can cash all the checks and write me one check. We can make a road trip and meet to exchange the funds or whatever will work best.

Thanks

Okay, I think then I will put it in my account and cut you a check. Any way we can mention Charlottesville FD as contributers?
