Grill Wars 2021 (Canceled)
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Northland have canceled the annual Grill Wars event due to staff shortages at local restaurants.
The annual event is an important fundraiser for the local Boys & Girls Clubs, which rely heavily on special events to fund the programming available to local youth. Grill Wars was initially scheduled to be held in August, however organizers and past participants hoped moving the event to September would increase the availability of staff and get past the busy summer season for local restaurants.
Despite the later date of Sept. 8, local restaurants were still struggling to take part in the fundraiser. Stokkes Meat Market was on board to provide burgers to the restaurants and several local establishments stepped forward and offered to participate, despite the present challenges. However, based on past attendance and the anticipated crowds, it was determined there were not enough restaurants to host the event.
