'Cue for Kids 2020

The Salvation Army of Wake County will hold its annual 'Cue for Kids event on Saturday, May 29-30, 2020 at the North Carolina State Farmers Market.

How good is your barbecue? Do you think it's the best? Show off your whole hog barbecue skills and help raise some money to support kids in need.

You have the chance to prove that you have the best recipe in town. Proceeds raised during the competition go to the Red Shield Club, a Salvation Army community center that offers kids a safe, educational, recreational, and spiritual safe haven for kids in need.

So join us on May 29-30, 2020 at the North Carolina State Farmers Market to prove that you have the best-tasting barbeque in town while also supporting the youth in our community.

Our yearly goal is to raise money for the Red Shield Club that offers kids educational, recreational and spiritual resources to meet their physical, social, academic and spiritual needs. Your participation in this event will fund athletic and travel expenses, summer camps and much more for the hundreds of kids this program helps.
