On April 9th & 10th, 2021 the Sharing Center of Central Brevard held its 6th annual Back Yard BBQ Contest at F. Burton Smith Park in West Cocoa. The event supports the Sharing Center’s Children’s Weekend Feeding Program.  More than 1,200 people attended the BBQ and we raised $75,000.00 at this year’s event. We can’t say thanks enough to all of our Sponsors! Especially JP Donovan Construction, Brevard Concrete & Paving, & Embrace Home Loans. We are very thankful for all the BBQ Competitors, Volunteers, and all those who came out to support the event. The success of this event will allow us to add more families in to the program next year”. This year there were 15 BBQ Teams who competed. Congratulations to all the winners of the competition. 1st Place in the Chicken Category went to Hold My Rub BBQ, 1st place in the Beef Category went to team Gettin’ Piggy Wit It, & 1st Place in the Pork Category went to Smoke on the Water BBQ. This year’s People’s Choice Winner was team Meat Commander and the BBQ Grand Champion was awarded to Hold My Rub BBQ.

Congratulations to Roxi Wandersee of Melbourne who won the Big Green Egg Raffle.

The event’s proceeds will benefit the Sharing Center’s Children’s Weekend Feeding Program, a program designed to empower families with children by providing access to healthy food on the weekends during the school year.
