Community wide event features bbq contest judged by Florida’s Chef Justin – 4th Down Event to Make a Touchdown for a Kid”

Unity Eastside of Tallahassee celebrates a community fun-and-friend raising event on October 13, 2013 from 12-3 p.m. The “4th Down Event to Make a Touchdown for a Kid” will offer a beautiful setting to bring a chair, relax, eat, and socialize with new friends. Events include labyrinth walks, tailgating fun, pickup flag football games, bounce house, football toss, dance demonstration brought to us by @ARTS Afterschool, a karate demo and board-breaking by American Karate Studios, face painting, fitness stretch demo by LEAP Fitness, music, and delicious BBQ presented by several area masters and food trucks.

The highlight of the day will be a BBQ contest to be judged by Florida’s State Chef, Chef Justin, International Culinary Ambassador for the State of Florida, and winner of a Food Network Challenge. Chef Justin travels the sunshine state as part of the Department of Agriculture’s mission to help children learn how to each healthier. The winner of the most delicious original BBQ dish will win an award, presented by Chef Justin.

Finally, the day will conclude with a raffle drawing to win one of two prizes.  The first is a gift basket filled with fun for the whole family – goodies and gift cards to locales around town, and the second, an FSU Coach Jimbo Fisher autographed football.

Representatives of all media are cordially invited to enjoy and cover the event. Created as a gift to our community to meet one another and enjoy our beautiful grounds, it is free and open to the public. Invite your neighbors, co-worker, friends and family, and to conclude a two month effort to raise funds from raffle  tickets to send 16 young members of the congregation to head to Unity regional rallies.
