Kiwanis Club of Tampa
Please Save The date! The date for the 49th Annual Kiwanis BBQ is October 19, 2017! Download the flyer here.
Kiwanis-style barbecue is a team effort: ticket selling, cooking, packing, distributing and delivering, with a side of bonding, fellowship and fun as we prepare 10,000-plus boxed barbecue chicken dinners for hungry people at Raymond James Stadium. The Kiwanis Club of Tampa started cooking up barbecue in 1968 with one single grill. Now you’ll find lots of volunteers working around the clock on the fourth Thursday of October for the event.
Where: Pickup at Raymond James Stadium, from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Downtown Pedestrian Pickup at One Mack - Cali Building
501 E. Kennedy Blvd. (corner of Morgan Street), from 11:15 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
What: Delicious Barbecue Chicken Dinner
(Half Barbecued Chicken, Potato Chips, Dinner Roll, and Cookie)
Cost: $10.00 for each Boxed Dinner. Order by October 11th
Free Delivery Available for Each Order of 25 or More Dinners
As one of our club's major events, the BBQ allows us to fund most of our service projects such as our Children's Christmas Party, our construction projects, our scholarship programs, Be Wise-Immunize and organizations such as Metropolitan Ministries, The YMCA, The Salvation Army and Meals on Wheels. In fact, on the day of our barbecue, we give Meals on Wheels kitchen volunteers a break for the day. Our club takes care of dinner for Meals on Wheels recipients, allowing the organization to close its kitchen for one day.
Tickets are available from a Kiwanis Club member or you can contact us and we will mail them to you.
Please Note: Meals can be donated to charity of your choice (e.g. Children’s Home, Metropolitan Ministries, Meals on Wheels, etc.), but please indicate the charity with your order. We will ensure delivery or pickup of donated meals. You can also donate the full amount directly to Kiwanis to support our efforts and forgo the meal.
Please make your check payable to “Tampa Kiwanis Foundation”.
