Our annual fundraiser is Smoke on the Lake BBQ Festival which is held the second weekend in May each year at Cauble Park on Lake Acworth. This is a partnership with the City of Acworth and ABA Acworth Business Association. Thousands attend to eat great BBQ cooked by very competitive backyard cook teams. All Net Proceeds go to charitable organizations with over 95% going to local groups and organizations. We raised over $35,000 in 2018 that we will invest back into the Community.
