Get ready for four days of amazing BBQ — all for a good cause. Dave Burton, owner of World Class Bar-B-Q located at 5101 N. Saginaw Street in Flint, is firing up the grill and giving back to the community. World Class Bar-B-Q is donating all of the proceeds from the food they sell from Thursday Sept. 5 – Sunday Sept. 11 to support the soup kitchens at Catholic Charities. The workers at World Class Ba-B-Q are donating their wages and all their tips!
According to a recently released press statement, World Class Bar-B-Q, started out as a family run business and has been serving in the Flint area for nearly 20 years. Seven years ago, Burton decided to dedicate the last weekend of the BBQ season to raise money for charity. “Dave Burton and World Class Bar-B-Q have done an amazing job of stepping in to help raise money for our meal programs,” says Vicky Schultz, President and CEO of Catholic Charities, “We are so grateful to have supporters like Dave committed to giving back to the community. In the seven years that World Class Bar-B-Q has been doing this, they have raised almost $120,000. Without the generosity of our friends and neighbors, we wouldn’t be able to continue to serve those who come to us for help.”
The delicious barbecue will be served each day from 11am-11pm. Tender brisket, chicken smothered in a special blend World Class Bar-B-Q’ sauce, turkey legs, polish sausage, and smoked ribs rubbed with spices and premium herbs will be available for takeout during this event. Most menu items range from $6 for polish sausage, to $22 for a full slab of amazing BBQ ribs, a variety that makes it convenient to stop by to pick up a quick lunch, or dinner for the family.
Individuals or businesses who would like to donate supplies or make monetary contributions to help the cause, can call Dave Burton at 810 394 0314
