Downtown Whitewater. Inc. Announces New BBQ Pig in the Park State Championship Cook-off Sanctioned by Kansas City Barbecue Society

Downtown Whitewater, Inc. will host the area’s first BBQ Pig in the Park Cook-off, which was sanctioned by Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) 2 weeks ago, and this week became a State Championship event. The event will be held September 21-22, 2012 in Downtown Whitewater, on the beautiful award-winning Cravath Lakefront.

“This is a wonderful endorsement for Downtown Whitewater, Inc., to receive the sanctioning status from KCBS and the state championship status from the Governor’s office. A sanctioned contest brings fair scoring, integrity, experience, a built in base of cookers and judges and a support system of other organizers and members,” said Tami Brodnicki, Executive Director of Downtown Whitewater, Inc.

“Downtown Whitewater, Inc. is beginning the Annual Pig in the Park BBQ Cook-Off Competition for two reasons,” Brodnicki explained. “First we want to promote our lakefront, the downtown and the merchants.” “Second the BBQ Cook-Off will be a fund-raising event for our organization, we want to continue providing programs for the community, merchants and property owners.”

The Kansas City Barbeque Society, a nonprofit organization, sanctions over 400 barbeque contest coast- to-coast throughout America. From volunteering to actual event production, their members also offer assistance to civic and charitable organizations who organize events.
