Ribs for Kids Fundraiser

In 2018 the Grand Lake Family YMCA's Ribs for Kids signature fundraiser sold 756 racks of ribs, had 21 sponsors, and raised over $24,000 for our financial assistance program. This annual fundraiser is held the week before the 4th of July and is great source for your family and friends holiday meal plans. The baby back pork ribs are professionally smoked by volunteers, then quickly froozen for pick up by buyers. They are easily heated up and ready to serve. Cost is $25 per slab, proceeds go to our Strong Kid's Campaign that raises funds for the Y's financial assistance program that benefits youth, adults, families, and seniors. The funds ensure that we do not have to turn someone away from participating in programs or membership because they cannot afford to pay. The Y is always looking for sponsors for our fundraiser, so if you are interested please contact the Y at 918-786-5774. We will start advertising and taking rib orders the first of May each year, if you Friend our Ribs for Kids page on Facebook you'll be able to keep track of the event. This is a great way to help the less fortunate, and get a great meal at the same time.
