More than 260 people turned out May 16 for the third annual ACT for Alexandria Community BBQ Bash, an event to celebrate the philanthropic works of community organizations.
“We bill this as ‘No speeches, no auctions, no asks,’” said ACT president John Porter. “We just want the community to come together, celebrate the many good works of local philanthropic and volunteer organizations and of course have fun.”
Held along the waterfront, CityFarm Band performed Bluegrass music and refreshments were provided by Pork Barrel BBQ, Vola's Dockside Grill and Hi-Tide Lounge, Alexandria Restaurant Partners, Bittersweet Catering and Port City Brewing Company.
“What a beautiful evening,” said Senior Services of Alexandria executive director Mary Lee Anderson, referring both to the event and the brief respite from several days of rain. “It’s wonderful to see so many people turn out to celebrate our community.”
