Our Mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence for women and their children
through long term transformational care that seeks to restore faith, hope, and health
This past Friday night Emily’s Place of Plano, TX hosted their annual Serving Hope Gala to raise funds for their important work serving women and children in our local community. Black Iron Pitmaster Will Fleischman has been involved with Emily’s Place both cooking meals to share with the residents and in fundraising efforts for the last 10 years. His efforts, along with the Board of Directors, have raised more than $60,000 using BBQ as a platform.
This year Black Iron BBQ donated a Will Fleischman Signature Series pit to the live auction items. The pit, along with a 2 hour demo and signed copy of his cookbook (to be released May 10th) raised $3,500. Along with his backyard BBQ dinners in partnership with Big Pappa’s BBQ Team, Will helped raise more than $21,500. The event raised more than $250,000 in total.
Black Iron BBQ is committed to being a strong local partner for important causes such as Emily’s Place. We are proud to have been a part of such an outstanding evening.
