New for 2023!
BBQ for Books with a Side of Bluegrass, an event hosted by Stokes Partnership for Children, is a fundraiser to benefit early literacy programs in Stokes County. This year the event will be held on Friday, October 6, 2023, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., with doors opening at 5:00 p.m. This year we are making some changes including a beautiful new venue, Nana Mac Meadows, which is located at the foot of Pilot Mtn. in Pinnacle, NC. Also, new for 2023, we will be adding a cash bar for your enjoyment and adding a fast and furious live auction!
As usual, you can look forward to great food, our “World Famous” silent auction, all the games, and the tremendous fun that has put this event on the map. All proceeds from BBQ for Books with a Side of Bluegrass are used to purchase new books and to fund early literacy programs for the 2,500 young children in Stokes County. Did you know strong early reading skills form the basis for learning in all subjects? Your donation will help to support early literacy programs such as Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Reach Out and Read, the Child Care Resource and Referral Library, and books that are given away at multiple community events throughout the year. With proceeds from past BBQ for Books, we have recently installed a professional Book Walk exhibit at King Central Park. We are optimistically looking forward to branching out to other parks in the future! If that is not enough, we have opened a new Little Free Library in our office parking lot! Come by and take a book and leave a book.
Food will be served from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and features food by Dennis Ruff. The bar will be open from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Ticket price includes the meal and entertainment (not including alcohol). Advance purchase is strongly recommended.
