Just like chili, hot wings and BBQ, everyone thinks THEIR'S is the BEST but... they haven't had a chance to compete! NOW they do, all while benefiting a great cause! The competition will consist of 3 categories: a Traditional (sausage roux), a Non-traditional (red-eye and any other creative interpretations), and new in 2015 by popular demand a Veggie or Vegan gravy. A judge’s panel will choose winners in each category . There will need to be 6 participants per category. About Boys and Girls Haven Our Mission Statement: We shelter, heal and teach struggling young people to become productive and healthy members of our community.
Since 1950, Boys & Girls Haven has transformed the lives of more than 3,500 abandoned, abused and neglected children. More than just a home, we provide stability, education, and new, productive skills that will lead to success in adulthood. In a time where more and more children find themselves growing up without the support of a loving family, Boys & Girls Haven is here to provide a home and a future filled with promise.
At Boys and Girls Haven, we change children’s lives. We heal the scars left by abuse and neglect. We teach struggling youth to be successful as they embark on lives of independence. Too many children aging out of foster care find themselves adrift in adulthood with limited resources and nowhere to turn for help. Not surprisingly, the number of homeless youth between the age of 18 and 24 is on the rise. At Boys and Girls Haven, our mission has always been to provide struggling youth with both a home and a future. Through a variety of programs, we provide therapy, stability, education, and vocational training for our community’s most vulnerable children and young adults.
