Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 15th Anniversary of the Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Competition! Your support for families facing homelessness was incredible.

We had an amateur BBQ competition, live music throughout the day, and delicious BBQ and other food vendors. There was also plenty of fun to be had for the kiddos at our Piglet Playland.

Thank you to all of the wonderful music acts that joined us throughout the day, including Mary Macaroni, Panic at the Costco, EP8, Libido Funk, and more.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the families served by Bridge Communities. Thank you once again for supporting Bridge families when they need you the most!
