Classic Southern BBQ Chain to Bring Back Popular Rib Eating Contest as Part of Fundraiser to Benefit Tim Tebow Foundation's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - CuisineWire -- Having opened its doors to BBQ fans in Jacksonville in 1980, Woody's Bar-B-Q is firing up the smoker in preparation for its 42nd Anniversary Celebration. Hosted at Woody's Bar-B-Q of Ponte Vedra Beach on Saturday, October 22 from 2-4 p.m., the event will include the much-anticipated return of the classic Southern BBQ chain's Rib Eating Contest – which has been on a three-year hiatus due to COVID. As has been the case for the last two years, 100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Tim Tebow Foundation's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry. For taking part in the contest, participants will receive a "Total Pig" t-shirt and the winners will be awarded $100 for first place and $50 for second place. In addition to the Rib Eating Contest, the event will include a silent auction, live music, magician, raffle, door prizes and - of course - great food.

"We held our very first Rib Eating Contest at our original location in Jacksonville in 2008, so we're really excited to bring back this time-honored tradition among our loyal fanbase," said Yolanda Mills-Mawman, Woody's Bar-B-Q Co-Founder and President. "Our anniversary celebrations have always featured a fundraising component, benefiting everyone from the Tim Tebow Foundation and K9s for Warriors to No Kid Hungry and First Coast Florida Child Protection Team. The mission at the heart of TTF's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry really resonates with the entire Woody's Bar-B-Q team."

In hopes of raising as many funds as possible to support TTF's mission, Woody's Bar-B-Q will be collecting a participation fee of $10 from each of the participants. There will also be a silent auction at the event, so the BBQ franchise is actively seeking donations from local, regional and national businesses for attendees to bid on. 100% of the proceeds from the Rib Eating Contest, silent auction and raffle will benefit TTF's Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry. Woody's will also be donating 10% of its sales from all three of its corporate locations – at 1638 University Blvd S in Jacksonville, 226 Solana Road in Ponte Vedra Beach and 1301 N Orange Avenue in Green Cove Springs – on the day of the Anniversary Celebration. Anyone interested in sponsoring the event or donating an item or service for the raffle or silent auction is invited to reach out to admin@woodys.com. Aspiring contestants in the Rib Eating Contest can contact Woody's Bar-B-Q of Ponte Vedra Beach at (904) 280-1110 to have their name added to the list.
