BBQ Party to fund Early Learning Initiatives

  BBQ legend and World Champion Moe Cason has partnered with Pensacola Eggfest to assist Studer Community Institute to give every child the opportunity to be the best they can be and move the needle on kindergarten readiness with their Building Brains Program.


Research shows that around 85 percent of the brain is developed in the first three years of life, and the amount of positive language interaction a child gets in that critical stretch is the key to unlocking their potential. Working with experts, SCI has developed programs to inform, equip, and support parents on the pivotal importance of early brain development.

This pitmaster extraordinaire and father of four daughters believes that great BBQ is simply a recipe away for anyone, and he’s ready to spill the beans (and the sauce) with his new cookbook featuring 75 mouth-watering recipes.

Here’s the juicy part: all the profit from the cookbook sales on June 22 at Pensacola Bay Brewery go straight to Studer Community Institute to support their early learning brain initiatives. Moe Cason has a heart as big as his BBQ pit!
