Grand Island volunteer first responders regularly give to the community. Now, Elderwood at Grand Island is providing an opportunity for the public to give back to these first responders.
The long-term care community, at 2850 Grand Island Blvd., will host a benefit barbecue from 3:30-6:30 p.m., Thursday, May 28. All proceeds benefit Grand Island's volunteer first responders.
The event will feature BW's Smokin' Barrels Barbecue "to-go" dinners, including a half-chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, roll and butter. Families are invited to visit the fire trucks, enjoy time with a balloon sculpture artist and enter to win a basket raffle.
Tickets are $9 pre-sale or $10 at the door. They are available at Elderwood and at the rectory office of St. Stephen's Church, 2100 Baseline Road.
