Bikes, Blues and BBQ wrapped up its 19th annual rally in Northwest Arkansas this year with a funding celebration at George’s Majestic Lounge.
Beyond boosting the Fayetteville economy, the annual event is designed around charity.
Bikes, Blues and BBQ has donated $2 million to local charities since its inception in 2000.
“We’re giving away more in grants this year than we ever have in the history of the rally, We’re very happy about that. Overall, fundraising is a little bit down from last year, but we really felt like it was a strong rally,” said Tommy Sisemore, executive director of Bikes, Blues and BBQ.
Money raised will go to organizations like the Children’s Safety Center, Restoration Village, the Boys and Girls Club and the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Northwest Arkansas.
