First Responders Appreciation BBQ

July 25, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Wendell Foster is hosting its Second Annual First Responders Appreciation BBQ at Wendell Foster’s Sensory Park on Thursday, July 25 from 10:30am to 1:30pm. The lunch was created to honor local first responders in Owensboro and Daviess County. Police Officers, Sheriff’s Department, City and County Fire Fighters, and EMTs are all invited to a cookout.

In 2018, Wendell Foster treated over 150 first responders with a free lunch and yard games while getting to know the people supported by Wendell Foster. 

“We have made this an annual event because our First Responders are invaluable. Serving them lunch shows our appreciation and grows a stronger bond for when we need their services. We are honored to host this event for our local heroes,” says Eric Scharf, CEO at Wendell Foster.

The goal of this lunch is to create a fun environment so we can enjoy one another’s company. Wendell Foster is looking forward to honoring the men and women serving our local communities with lunch, games, and fellowship. If an emergency were to occur both parties would have the knowledge needed to work together.

For food ordering purposes, please RSVP by July 18 by calling 270-683-4517
