Lee BIA Builders Care’s 11th annual BBQ, Bands & Brew to be held April 5 at Centennial Park in Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2020) – Lee BIA Builders Care will host its 11th annual BBQ, Bands & Brew fundraising event on April 5 at Centennial Park in Fort Myers.

The 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 and games for all ages.

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 425 Lee County households and provided in excess of $4.75 million in construction services and materials at no cost to families.

BBQ, Bands & Brew will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 5 at Centennial Park, 2000 W. First St. in Fort Myers.

The annual event attracts thousands of guests each year, and since its inception in 2010, the event has raised over $590,000 in support of Lee BIA Builders Care. Jonesez BBQ, which was named “Best BBQ in Town” last year, is returning in 2020 to defend its title.

All Star Equipment Rentals & Sales is the Presenting Sponsor for BBQ, Bands & Brew. Additional sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $6,500 and include recognition in marketing and promotional materials, event tickets, preferred parking, barbecue lunch and more.
