Every year, nearly 1,000 Kansas Citians enjoy some of the city’s best blues music and eat some of the city’s most delicious BBQ. Lindsay Shannon, BB’s owner and local blues aficionado, has been partnering with Sherwood Center for the last 26 years to make this event successful. The bands donate their time and talent and all proceeds benefit Sherwood Center’s programming to support children and adults with autism spectrum disorder.
Funds raised from the Blues & BBQ event will help Sherwood Center with their mission to empower children and adults with autism spectrum disorder and related disabilities to maximize their potential in family and community life.
Serve KC Volunteers will operate the entrance gates this year. We will be collecting/selling tickets, checking ID’s and wrist-banding 21 and older. We will also assist in other areas as needed such as beer, t-shirt and raffle ticket sales.
Come out and enjoy a great Blues and BBQ while benefiting a great cause!
A shuttle bus will run from 81st and Ward Parkway to the event and back. Be sure to answer the T-shirt size question when you RSVP so we can have a shirt in the right size for you.
