Full hearts and bellies!

We had a beautiful June day for our 2019 Great Grill Off. We warmly welcomed 11 community grill teams and nearly 1400 guests of all ages to the Wooster Campus of Christian Children’s Home of Ohio for amazing food and family fun! We know you came hungry as more than 5,000 burgers and 300 hot dogs were served along with your favorite picnic sides. Thank you to Frito Lay who once again donated chips and to Hartzler’s Family Dairy who contributed 24 gallons of ice cream to make the day extra sweet.

We saw smiles across the campus as friends and family enjoyed a host of carnival games, inflatables, face painting and tractor rides. Many of you took home winning desserts through our Bake Walk. In our inaugural basketball shootout, 69 shots were taken at 3/4 court resulting in three winners.

Congratulations to all of our winners… including Spoon Market who you voted Best Burger for a third consecutive year with their Kung Fu Panda Burger. Your second favorite burger was the Too Gouda Be True Burger grilled by West View Healthy Living. Third place winner was Buehler’s with their Luau Burger. The competition was filled with laughter and loyalty for their amazing creations. And it was delicious!

Our day was a huge success with the support of our generous sponsors and dedicated volunteers who helped us throughout the weekend. Thank you for your kindness and leadership. Your support allowed us to help others experience their worth in Christ during our 50th celebration weekend.

Enjoy the photo gallery for a taste of the Grill Off and make plans to join us in June 2020 for our eighth annual competition!

Are you hungry yet?

The 2019 competition is really heating up between our 11 community grill teams. This year we are seeing a mix of hot and spicy creations as well as dangerous amounts of cheese 🙂 Will Spoon Market hold on to their undefeated status, or will a new team steal it away? Your vote could determine the 2019 Best Burger.

Get a sneak peek below, and be sure to bring the whole family and all of your friends out for our seventh annual event! Admission is free; your generous donation at the gate helps kids and families experience their worth perhaps for the first time!
