Lee BIA Builders Care’s popular BBQ, Bands & Brew fundraising event is returning on April 15 to a new venue, Caloosa Sound Amphitheater in downtown Fort Myers.
The 12th annual event features Southwest Florida’s top pit masters competing for the title of “Best BBQ in Town,” as well as live music from local headlining bands, numerous vendors and fun-filled activities for all ages including a lively cornhole tournament and a children’s play area with face-painting, games and more. Jonesez BBQ, which was named “Best BBQ in Town” at the last BBQ, Bands & Brew event, is returning in 2023 to defend its title.
Proceeds from the event support Builders Care’s mission to provide emergency construction services at no cost to needy and deserving elderly and/or disabled homeowners, and their families, who cannot obtain repairs through traditional means. To date, Lee BIA Builders Care has helped more than 500 Lee County households and provided over $5 million in emergency construction services and materials at no cost to families and local homeowners in need. Since its inception, the event has raised over $675,000 in support of Lee BIA Builders Care.
