For any of you local
For any of you local backyard teams looking for a fun non-sanctioned Saturday that can still reap some heavy prize money, look no further, I’ve got you covered! Join in the fun in the backyard division of our 2nd Annual Public Safety Cook Off at Hawgin On Lanier this year. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
Summer may be marching toward Fall, but we still have plenty of fun in the sun to share!
Hawgin’ On Lanier is a community festival built around a cash-prize BBQ competition on Saturday, August 27th, 2016. We’ve changed the format for 2016, letting go of the KCBS sanctioned professional competition to focus on the fun of our Backyard and Public Safety divisions. Last year’s Public Safety cookoff was a big hit and this year we are opening it up to any fire station, police precinct or EMT service in and around Gainesville / Hall County. Additionally, anyone can enter the backyard competition with a team of friends, coworkers or neighbors. Both of the divisions will be awarded cash payouts for First, Second, and Third place in each of the three meat categories (Pork Butt, Pork Ribs, and Chicken). Grandchampion prizes will also be up for grabs to the team in each divison who accumulates the most points overall.
Of course, there’s lots to do and enjoy for everyone who loves a good time and great BBQ but isn’t so keen on spending hours cooking! The festival & concert portion of Hawgin’ On Lanier will begin at 2pm on Saturday, August 27th. The festival will feature BBQ plates, live music, a beer and wine garden, vendors of BBQ accessories and arts & crafts items, children’s activities, fun competitions for all ages, a trivia challenge, and will be capped off by an awe-inspring fireworks show at dark, followed by an encore concert set! Every paid admission includes tickets for 1 BBQ plate & drink, plus 2 activity tickets. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for children ages 10-16, and free for children age 9 and under. Additional food & activity tickets or wristbands will be available for sale.
So, why are we doing all of this? Well, we love summer, BBQ, and Lake Lanier. But we also love to support the youth of Hall County. Hawgin’ On Lanier is a fundraiser to support our Gut Check program and Empty Stocking Fund charities.
Started in 1997, GutCheck was created by the Gainesville Jaycees to teach young men discipline and leadership in a safe and structured, high-energy environment. The free three day program is held every year in July to reach rising seventh graders who are either at-risk or are not realizing their full potential.
Since 1955 the Gainesville Jaycees has been providing Christmas to needy children in the Hall County community through the Empty Stocking Fund. The Jaycees raise funds throughout the year to provide Christmas to hundreds of children who are chosen through our special partnerships with local schools. The children receive warm clothing, shoes, educational toys and items necessary for daily living.
