About the Event

 
In 2013, the 14th Annual Rock'n Ribs BBQ Festival raised $152,250 for agencies that serve "Children of the Ozarks", including: Boys & Girls Town of Missouri, Ronald McDonald House Charities-Mobile Dental Unit, Ozark Trails Council - Boy Scouts of America, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch, Ozarks Regional YMCA and Harmony House. The funding was used to provide specific programs and services to disadvantaged and at-risk children. The Rotarians of Springfield, Missouri want to thank each sponsor for helping to make this event so successful.
