Holland & Usry April 2019

Supporting a Good Cause Has Never Tasted so Good! 2019 6 TH ANNUAL BURGER COOK-OFF

It is almost time for the Cribbs Kitchen Burger Cook-Off benefiting Children’s Cancer Partners. This year, Holland & Usry is proud to be one of the sponsors for such a wonderful event that does so much good to help Carolina children obtain access to lifesaving cancer treatment. This outdoor event is held in the heart of downtown Spartanburg. The Burger Cook-Off is on Saturday, April 13, 2019, and begins at 2:00 p.m. It is now in its sixth year and has raised tens of thousands of dollars to help Children’s Cancer Partners support families in their time of need. It is, as the name suggests, a cooking competition where teams of coworkers and friends display their grilling ability and create their own custom burger. The teams vie for the title while supporting a great cause. This is a family-friendly event where participants sample slider-sized burgers made by each team and other treats while casting votes for the winner. If you are in the area on Saturday, April 13, stop by to enjoy local bands. Bring the kids as well, so they can experience the fun of children’s activities such as face painting, balloon animals, and inflatables. Holland & Usry is particularly excited about this event because it is hosted by one of our favorite restaurants, Cribbs Kitchen. More importantly, it supports one of our favorite charities, Children’s Cancer Partners. This group provides Carolina families with funds for transportation, meals, and lodging so children can get the lifesaving treatment they need. Oftentimes families struggle to afford travel to childhood cancer treatments only available in select cities in South Carolina. Some families need to travel outside the state. It goes without saying, many families facing these hardships are put under a tremendous financial strain. After their child receives such a diagnosis, some are unable to even meet their basic needs. What’s more, this organization hosts events and activities that allow children and their families to meet others who are also in the fight against cancer. This helps them overcome the sense of isolation that can come with such a diagnosis.

We reached out to Marisa Cecil, the director of development for Children’s Cancer Partners, and she says the following, “... First and foremost, we are doing this for our Carolina children battling cancer. We help over 600 children throughout North and South Carolina get to the care they need. The Burger Cook-Off is a huge family-friendly event that gives community members the opportunity to support families at a time of tremendous need.” She also noted that the event would not be possible without the help of Raj Patel and William Cribb of Cribbs Kitchen, whom she thanked. This is a sentiment we at Holland & Usry share. We hope to see you on April 13 at the Burger Cook-Off! Please help spread the word and invite your friends! –John Holland
