Annual BBQ competition to benefit schools seeks sponsors

Hudson large web iconHudson ‒ On Saturday, Sept. 7, the Hudson Education Foundation (HEF) and New England Barbecue Society are co-hosting the second annual HEFferFEST BBQ Competition and Food Festival, a fundraising event, at the Hudson Elks Lodge Pavilion, 99 Park St., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Attendees may sample food from local restaurants, vote for their favorite dishes, and enter a free door prize drawing for a gift basket worth over $50. The festival features musical performances, entertainment, vendor booths, the barbecue competition, raffles, and an awards ceremony recognizing winning restaurants and barbecue competitors.

HEF is inviting businesses and organizations to become a part of HEFferFEST as sponsors by making monetary or in-kind donations. Sponsor benefits include free pre- and post-event publicity via the internet, newspapers, HUD-TV, all Hudson public schools, and the HEF website, as well as recognition in the festival’s promotional materials and event program. Sponsorships are tax-deductible and help to make a positive impact on the quality of education in Hudson schools.

HEF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the educational experience in Hudson Public Schools. The festival’s proceeds are used to subsidize HEFferFEST and finance grants to teachers for the development of innovative educational programs and projects. Since 1994, HEF grants have funded visits from authors and musicians, hands-on scientific studies, and novel physical education activities, to name a few.
