Successful BBQ Weekend! Your Support Goes a Long Way
5k Chicken Run/Walk
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped with our 3rd Annual Chicken Run! This employee-driven event had such a tremendous outpouring of support this year! All your efforts help Wesbury residents through the Benevolent Care Fund. This year we surpassed our goal raising $9,000. Everyone’s talents were much appreciated, from businesses sponsoring the Chicken Run, baking items, laminating, rallying participants, volunteering time, creativity, and the list is just endless. Each of you makes this event possible and we sincerely thank you!

Chicken BBQ and Craft Fair
Our 29th annual Chicken BBQ and Craft Fair was a huge success! The weather was perfect, the event was very well attended, and everyone had a great time! We served 2,710 chicken and rib dinners plus a lot of hotdogs to the estimated 3,000 plus people who were in attendance.
While the Sunset Auxiliary has not yet totaled their proceeds, they sold out of baked goods and the rummage and used book sales were very successful! The money raised from these sales will be used later this year to purchase items that will benefit our residents.
The nearly 300 volunteers, vendors and crafters, musicians and car show attendees were all very happy with the event!
THANK YOU to our all our sponsors, volunteers, employees and residents who were a part of this amazing event! It takes all of us working together to make Wesbury the wonderful place it is!
