BBQ Benefit: The Sequel

For the second year in a row, Edna De Saro and Lone Star National Bank hosted a BIG barbecue plate fundraiser to help with the expenses for Laurin’s care. On Saturday, April 22, the parking lot of Melba’s Dance School became THE place to pick up a great lunch. For $8, you could feast on a mountain of BBQ chicken, rice, beans, potato salad and bread.

A high-energy team of volunteers dished up hundreds of to-go boxes of food and delivered them directly to the vehicles swiftly and efficiently. Lupe and G.J., two of Laurin’s closest friends, kept things moving (see video below) so that few had to wait more than half a minute for their food. Lupe and G.J. also head up a faithful group of Laurin’s friends who make it a point to visit her regularly, which she always LOVES, and help with her fundraisers when needed.

The BBQ event this year raised more than $10,000 for the We Love Laurin Special Needs Trust, which helps with the ongoing expenses of Laurin’s constant care needs.

The BBQ benefit was held in the parking lot at Melba's Dance School.
