Safeway BBQ Battle

Summer is the perfect time to get outdoors and fire up the grill. Over the weekend of June 21 and 22, hundreds of America’s best barbecue outlets gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. in the front yard of the President of the United States. These grilling experts gathered for the 22nd Annual Safeway Barbecue Battle. Safeway generously invited Boys Town Washington D.C. to set up our own non-grilling site to offer information about our programs.

Boys Town Washington D.C. staff braved the hottest weekend so far of a humid summer to talk about the ways in which we save children and heal families, and to also recruit potential foster parents for training. Thanks to Safeway, Boys Town Washington D.C. Foster Family Services SM recruitment gathered information from over 100 new and potential foster care parents. The effort all around created the perfect dynamic to spread the news about our great programs!
