Oct. 16, 2012. On Monday, Oct. 29 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Bandana’s BBQ & Grill will host “Give Back Night,” featuring members of the ASU football team to benefit Western Youth Network. The event will be held at Bandana’s BBQ & Grill, Highway 105, Boone.
At the event, attendees will have the opportunity to eat the best barbecue in town, meet Appalachian State University football players, talk to Western Youth Network staff and board members, and enter a raffle for numerous prizes signed by Appalachian State University football players. Ten percent of proceeds from Bandana’s BBQ & Grill and 100 percent of proceeds from the raffle will benefit the youth and families served by Western Youth Network.
“We are incredibly grateful to Bandana’s for hosting such a wonderful event that will benefit so many youth and families in the High Country,” said Director of Development, Faith Motter. “Without the support of the community, WYN would not exist.”
