Date Announced for 6th Annual Ribstock MBA BBQ Festival
The Millard Business Association’s (millardbusinessassociation.org) Ribstock committee is excited to announce the 6th Annual Ribstock MBA BBQ Festival is scheduled for July 28. The event will again be held in the parking lot of the Millard Super Saver at 5710 S. 144th St. from noon – 11 p.m.
The story of Ribstock centers on the idea of bringing people together for a love of BBQ and community. The concept of hosting a local BBQ festival started with a simple conversation between MBA members Jeff and Michelle Helany and current Ribstock Chair, Kenny Engelmeyer. Jeff suggested a BBQ event based on his memorable experiences in the south to Kenny, who decided to propose this idea to father and son professional BBQing team, Steve and Jeff Gehring. Together, they created Ribstock!
Ribstock a multi-purpose community event focused on three things: Scholarships, Project Wee Care, and community involvement. The Millard Business Association (MBA) and Millard Business Community Foundation present six $1,000 scholarships annually to students of the Millard School district. Additionally, over the course of ten years, Project Wee Care has helped over 10,000 people in the Millard area have a merry Christmas despite their financial circumstances. Event sponsors will be given the opportunity to address members of the community and talk with them about their businesses and how they may be able to network.
