On September 11th, Downtown Glen Ellyn was the site of a Barbeque Cook-Off of 50 backyard chefs with proceeds benefitting Bridge Communities, a non-profit which provides transitional housing for homeless families.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th events on the East Coast, guest judges were hometown heroes in the fire, police and medical fields. The festival atmosphere included live music all day. HBK volunteers participated in the day by providing traffic detail in the early morning hours, assisting with booth set-up, and, in the end, enjoying each other’s company and tasting a variety of barbecue samples.
