The Rockin’ BBQ for the Troops Benefit has been held annually on Armed Forces Day since 2008. All money raised goes toward buying care packages for local troops who are deployed in harm’s way as well as other local veteran related causes. The event consists of live bands, food, raffles, keg beer, full cash bar, and more. The event cost is a $15 donation per person. It is held at American Legion Paper City Post 325 in Holyoke MA. Annually we draw between 200-300 people. It really is a great time for a great cause, our troops and our veterans.
