Lee BIA Builders Care’s popular BBQ, Bands & Brew fundraising event is returning on April 2 to Centennial Park in Fort Myers.
The 11th annual event features Southwest Florida’s top pit masters competing for the title of “Best BBQ in Town,” as well as live music from local headlining bands, numerous vendors and fun-filled activities for all ages including a lively cornhole tournament, a rock-climbing wall and a children’s play area with face-painting, magician, games, rock wall and more.
The event will include performances by Hat Trick, Deb & The Dynamics, Rocker and The Collective.
Jonesez BBQ, which was named “Best BBQ in Town” at the last BBQ, Bands & Brew event, is returning in 2022 to defend its title.
Proceeds from the event support Builders Care’s mission to provide emergency construction services at no cost to needy and deserving elderly and/or disabled homeowners, and their families, who cannot obtain repairs through traditional means.
To date, Lee BIA Builders Care has helped more than 475 Lee County households and provided over $4.8 million in emergency construction services and materials at no cost to families and local homeowners in need. With the exception of 2020-21, when the event was not held due to the pandemic, the event has been held annually since its inception in 2010, raising over $590,000 in support of Lee BIA Builders Care.
