BBQ, Beans, and Benefits

The 8th Annual Mill House Pig Out…

was a smashing success!! Community Brain Injury Services is thrilled to report that the 8th Annual Mill House Pig Out was our most successful Pig Out to date! Held on Friday, October 13th, The Mill House served up 710 lbs of excellently smoked pulled pork, and mass amounts of baked beans, cole slaw, and cornbread. The 8th Annual Mill House Pig Out raised more than $12,600 to benefit our Richmond Clubhouse program, The Mill House. So many individuals worked together to make this possible: members, staff, board members, volunteers, corporate sponsors, and most importantly, CBIS Board Member and BBQ chef extraordinaire, Elliott Buckner. We could not have done it without the help and support of all our friends and the community.

Many local law offices and businesses submitted pre-orders for their entire offices and several people picked up Friday night dinner for their families.  The pre-order room processed 25% more food than last year!  We also served over 125 guests through the line, and were excited that several members and staff drove all the way up from The Denbigh House in Newport News to take part in the event.

Community Brain Injury Services could not continue to enjoy such a successful event without the support and generosity of our community.  We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our community partners and corporate sponsors who made this year’s event possible. We appreciate your ongoing commitment to our event and cause!
