2nd Annual Backyard Blues BBQ

It’s official! Join us for our big fundraising event with more blues and BBQ than you could ever imagine. It’s a great way to give back to the cause and help with the fundraising effort. 100% of proceeds will go to Team MS is BS for their Capital Challenge Walk MS fundraising minimum. Get your tickets now – it’s an event for the ages, so be sure not to miss it!

We’ll be selling jewelry again this year, along with artwork and limited quantities of our exclusive MS is BS t-shirts.  In addition, folks from the team will be around to fill you in on our ongoing activities to raise awareness and funds for the National MS Society.
