You have the opportunity to help make some wonderful peoples dream come true!
Help Cripple Creek Barbreque get a food truck! Chef John and his family (the beautiful Stacy and CCB Jr) make an amazing product, which you can find here at their website. I have used their sauces and gifted them to friends. Soon, the Shy Socialites Chef Davenport will be creating some delicious recipes using CCB products that we will be sharing with all of you.
In addition to making the sauce and rubs, Chef John is an amazing food-artisan (like my creative words), whose dream it is to bring delicious and healthy food to the masses via the Cripple Creek food truck. He is going to share his love of food and knowledge of healthy eating with others!
There are amazing gifts you can receive for different levels of sponsorship, most of the gifts are donated by small businesses, so there is a limited number of each.
Get all the details here.
Have a dream you want to share, feel free to post about it in the comments.
