DaBBQ at DeGeorge

November 7, 2009

On November 7, 2009 our veterans who reside at the DeGeorge Hotel were honored with a lunch of grilled ribeye steaks, baked potatoes and award winning cheesy string beans.  The whole meal was finished off with an amazing cobbler served with a huge scoop of ice cream. The afternoon was a great time for sharing stories and gifts.

A big thank you to the Tailgate volunteers and the sponsors who made this event possible.  A special thanks to the Taste of Texas for sending out their best steaks and expert chefs.
