Overwhelming Local Support Helps “Makeover” Event

August 10, 2011
An unbelievable community effort was made on behalf of the Hill Family at the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition“ event this past weekend in Ottawa, Kan. In addition to the thousands from the community who came out to support the effort and all the media who helped promote this event, on behalf of KCBS and our entire barbecuing family we would like to extend a special “thank you” to the barbecue teams and local businesses whose contributions of time, resources and energy helped make the event a huge success!
