As of 12/20/2009
The great members of the California BBQ Association work year long raising funds
for California Children's Charities. Our non profit group hands over thousands
each year. We conduct BBQ classes, help charities sell BBQ at events, and lend a
hand whenever we can to help fund so many Children's charities statewide.
The CBBQA also supports many other charities that are not listed here including
but not limited to Troop charities.
