Event description

Description

Stan Hays, co-founder and CEO of Operation BBQ Relief®, knows his way around the competition barbeque circuit. He has two grand champion awards, four reserve champion awards, and several top ten finishes. Plus a runner-up finish in the 2015 season of Chopped Grillmaster on Food Network. He’s also passionate about helping people in distress through Operation BBQ Relief (OBR). Work that earned him recognition as a 2017 Top 10 CNN Hero.

The roots of OBR started in May 2011, when Stan Hays and Will Cleaver responded to a devastating tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri. Deploying a team of volunteers, theyserved 120,000 meals over 11 days. During the deployment, Stan and Will saw the impact they could have and decided to form Operation BBQ Relief (OBR) as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Since that time, OBR has responded to 54 disasters in 25 states, serving more than 2.9 million meals. All with the help of 7,000 volunteers and sponsors including Prairie Fresh, Butterball, Blue Rhino, Yeti, Farmers Insurance and more. Work centered on creating a sense of normalcy for victims of natural disasters through the comfort of a hot barbeque meal.

Come hear Stan’s story of building an organization that makes a true difference in the lives of communities in distress. A difference that grows with each hot and delicious Prairie Fresh® sandwich OBR serves.
