The second annual “Q’n for Kids” event took place on Saturday, September 15, at Palmer Park. This barbecue cook-off had 11 teams competing for the “Best BBQ” title while guests sampled the food and enjoyed live music and second-lining through the park. Not only did the cook-off have great food, but it also had many children’s activities, making the event fun for the entire family. Amongst the many exciting musical performances were Kermit Ruffins, Rockin’ Dopsie, Sharon Martin and Gina Brown.
Co-founders Sally-Ann Roberts and Cathy Harris, along with the event chair Karen Ribaul and co-chair Sherah Alaimo, put on the event to raise awareness and funds for local mentoring program Each One Save One.
Each One Save One is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving children through recruiting, training and supporting strong mentors. They provide children with adult mentors who tutor, support and encourage students throughout the school
year. Each One Save One also works with school districts and local government agencies to establish workable mentoring programs where none exist.
