Blues, Brews & BBQ 2016
The "Blues, Brews & BBQ" in Support of Plowshares Meals on Wheels is coming to Barra of Mendocino on Saturday, September 17th.
This successful event will once again be serving up gourmet BBQ, great Beer, and world class Blues!
Last Fiscal Year we served 31,587 meals to home-bound seniors who would not have a hot nutritious meal with out the dedicated drivers and runners who deliver these meals right to their door. These caring Volunteers who donate their time are vigilant for any signs that the Seniors on their route may need medical attention or may be in distress.
With the aging of the Mendocino County population we are aware that the need for Senior meals will increase and resources such as food, milk, equipment and containers, that keep food at a proper temperature, must be purchased. Since we need to raise money, we believe that our benefactors should have the most fun possible while achieving our goals.
A gourmet dinner prepared by Chef Austin, from UVMC, will include BBQ tri-tip, chicken and a vegetarian entree with sides of potato salad, cole slaw and baked beans. Dessert and coffee will follow.
Anderson Valley Brewing and Lagunitas Brewing Company will be donating and pouring their special brews and Barra wines will be featured.
This year our musical act will feature:
Henry Oden - Bass(Joe Louis Walker)
Rich Kirch - Guitar (John Lee Hooker)
Marcus David - Drums (Clover)
Fonky Rob Gordon - Keyboards (Craig Horton)
With special quests:
Lisa Kindred- Vocals
Barry "The Fish" Melton - Guitar,Vocals
Nick Gravenites - Vocals (The Electric Flag)
The music is Boogie derived, bluesy, funky and very dance able.
Our concept of bringing our supporters a really fun event without auctions or promotional interruptions is only possible because of the generosity of our Sponsors:
Silver sponsors: McCarty's Auto Body, Mendo Lake Credit Union, Beckstoffer Vineyards,and Friedman's Home Improvement.
Bronze Sponsors: Greg Hoyt Construction, Maverick Enterprises, Ukiah Electric, Ukiah Natural Foods Co-Op, Mendo Forest Products, Ukiah Ford, Savings Bank of Mendocino County, and Les Schwab Tires.
Tickets are $60, which includes dinner, beer and music and can be purchased at Mendocino Book Company, Plowshares, Dig! Music and online at Brown Paper Tickets.
Come on out and support this vital service to our Seniors. We promise a great time will be had by all!
