Bergey Boys Blazing BBQ of Canton received top honors at a charity BBQ event in La Crosse on June 24, 2017. The team’s pulled pork was awarded first place in the People’s Choice Contest at the Rotary Rock-n-Ribs BBQ Competition. The Bergey team — made up of father Don and three sons: Brock, Brandon and Brady — was one of 15 BBQ teams raising money for non-profit organizations.
The Bergey’s prize winnings totaled nearly $1,400, all of which were donated to the Mabel Area Food Shelf. Pastor Mary Waudby, LeeAnn Howard and Fred Williams, Jr. provided pulled pork samples during the contest on behalf of the food shelf.
This marks the third consecutive year Bergey Boys Blazing BBQ has won the charity contest, providing close to $3,500 for local community organizations.
Rotary Rock-n-Ribs is a joint effort of the La Crosse Valley View Rotary Club and the Holmen Area Rotary Club, with matching funds for the non-profit beneficiaries provided by Verve Credit Union.
