Kookers Kare Annual Winter Fun Fest

Save the date, February 18, 2017 for Kookers Kare Annual pot luck dinner, Winter FunFest. There will be fun, food and a great time and as always a chance to win free contest entries to the 2017 BBQ season. Bring a side dish, your own beverages and again Kookers Kare will provide two whole hogs and desert. The venue will be the same, Abdallah Shrine Temple, 5300 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, KS 66202.
Each year the party gets bigger and better. Last year’s theme “BBQ Olympics” was a hit. This year we will be decorating the hall with a “Las Vegas” theme. There will be a “Scavenger Hunt” to see which tables get to eat first.  We are looking at another sellout crowd so get your tickets early. Last year we raffled off over 33 BBQ Contest Entries and loads of door prizes.
Awards for the Kookers Kare BBQ Series will be given out and you will be able to sign up for the 2017 Series at the event. The series will be based on all the 2017 BBQ contests donated to Kookers Kare. The cost to enter will be a $30.00 tax deductible donation to Kookers Kare. The winners will be determined on a point system and prizes will be awarded at the 2018 Winter FunFest.
Thanks to the donations of time and money from competitive BBQ teams and the people in the BBQ community all around the Midwest, Kookers Kare was able to donate $5,000.00 to Harvesters Turkey fund. This provided turkeys to hundreds of families this past Thanksgiving. We were also able to donate $12,000 to Harvesters Back Snack program which will provide 48 children with weekend meals for an entire school year. Thank you to all those who support Kookers Kare.
