RibFest Fundraiser

August 3 - August 6

BENCHS has been asked to be the main nonprofit at the 25th Annual RibFest, August 3-6, 2023! The four-day fest will once again feature the best ribs from across the country and the finest in regional and national musical entertainment. It will take many hands to make this year’s RibFest another success and we are honored to have been chosen!

If you are attending RibFest this year don’t forget to stop at the BENCHS booth and vote for your favorite ribber! Every dollar donated goes directly to treating and caring for the animals at BENCHS!      $1 = 1 vote = $1 donated to BENCHS! 

We have filled all of our volunteer positions – thank you! Everyone participating should have received an email from Kayla with details about your role at the event. Remember, volunteers will be outside in the sun for large chunks of time, and will want to plan accordingly: sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, water bottles, etc. More information is available on our RibFest Volunteers page. Email Kayla at volunteerplanner@benchs.org with questions.
