Fun for All at 8th Annual Beer & BBQ Business After Hours Event!

Congrats to Peyton Ferree for winning the FREE GRILL! Childress Agency President, Gerald Childress (L) and Peyton Ferree (R) pause for a congratulatory handshake during the excitement

A good time was had by all who came out to the 8th Annual Beer & BBQ Business After Hours Event. Invitees were “Chillin’ & Grillin'” for three hours to great food and fellowship all sponsored by Businets and Childress Agency at the Fredericksburg Fairgrounds last Thursday evening, June 27th.

More than 50 local business vendors of every size and type had display tables, giveaway items, and raffles for the more-than-four-hundred guests. Live music on stage from the JD Roberts Band kept the vendors and guest’s toes tapping while they mixed and mingled. Three local breweries, Red Dragon Brewery, Adventure Brewing Co., and Highmark Brewery were supplying the suds to wash down the food from the 50-foot-long table of barbecue and picnic items supplies by Sullivan’s BBQ.

Everyone was a winner just for coming because no one left hungry, but one special winner took home the grand prize supplied by Childress Agency—a new BBQ Grill!

Peyton Ferree, a fifteen year old race car driver who is sponsored by Businets, had the winning raffle ticket number called from the stage by Childress Agency’s Eric Martin, after nearly 10 other numbers went unanswered. What a lucky kid!

If you missed it this year, hopefully you’ll be able to join us next year. This was a fun-filled and productive event to attend for businesses and their clients.
