(Cedar Hill) The 8th annual Backstoppers BBQ at the Cedar Hill VFW will be held this coming Saturday. It is once again sponsored by Gerding Enterprises in Dittmer. Owner Chuck Gerding says this event has grown in popularity over the years. He says the idea for this event stemmed from the events of 9-11.
The big draw of course is the BBQ by Screaming Eagle Grill. Gerding says they take pride in the food they cook up.
There will be plenty of beverages, live music, and raffle drawings for a Polaris Ranger UTV, a $2,000 gift card, a big-screen tv, and a huge 50/50 raffle. Also, there will be fireworks after dark. All proceeds will benefit Backstoppers of Jefferson County. This event raised well over $100,000 last year. The activities begin at 11 o’clock this Saturday morning at VFW in Cedar Hill.
