Let the cooking begin! Today we are cooking pork shoulder to make some bbq for tomorrow's Downtown Raleigh Festival of Hope. Local bbq restaurants have donated about 325 lbs of bbq for tomorrow's Big Barbecue Showdown. You can sample some bbq and cast your vote in the Crowd P leaser contest. There will be FREE food, bbq contest, games, giant inflatables, live music and more at the festival tomorrow from 10am - 2pm. The event is open to the public and our way of saying "thanks" to our community. We will give tours of the Mission every 15 minutes during the event so you can learn more about our ministries to the poor and homeless. We ask that you bring donations of paper products to benefit the Mission and help build a "Paper Palace" during the festival.
The weather is supposed to be great and we hope you'll stop by and enjoy this FREE, family fun event!
