NAIOP Supports daniel in 2011 Jacksonville Backyard BBQ Event, Takes Home Award

May 26th, 2011 · Leave a Comment

NAIOP of Northeast Florida, the region’s commercial real estate authority and trade association, recently supported the local nonprofit daniel kids by participating as a contributing sponsor in the 2011 Jacksonville Backyard BBQ Championship that took place at EverBank Field. NAIOP and its members were able to take home more than a good feeling from charitable work after they were announced as the runner-up in the Pork Competition and ranked No. 4 in the overall Backyard Division.

The Jacksonville Backyard BBQ Championship, now in its third year, is a fundraiser for the Glyn Cook Memorial Scholarship for daniel kids, which provides financial assistance to qualified students at daniel who want to further their education at an accredited university, college or trade school. This year’s event included more than 30 amateur and professional BBQ teams, all of which competed in three categories: chicken, ribs and pork. Trophies were awarded to the first, second and third place winners in each category as well as a Grand Champion and Reserve Champion award. Those who attended the event were able to sample BBQ from participating teams as well as enjoy fun games, entertainment and music.
