Greetings from the Jarrod Wittneben Memorial Scholarship Foundation!

Thank you for taking the time to consider sponsoring or donating to our event. Our foundation was created in a time of darkness and deep sorrow at the end of 2013 after losing our beloved friend and family member, Jarrod Wittneben, in a work-related accident. In our time of grief, we found comfort in giving back to the youth of our community while honoring Jarrod’s memory. We felt it would be appropriate to raise funds for college scholarships through one of the things that Jarrod was most passionate about…BBQ.

Through the funds raised from the last three cook-off fundraisers, we have been able to provide local high school seniors with over $82,000 in scholarships for the cost of tuition, fees, and books. We hope to continue that trend, with your support.

The 6th annual Jarrod Wittneben Memorial Scholarship Foundation BBQ Cook-Off fundraiser will be held this year on May 17th and 18th at Harvest Park in Needville, TX. In order to ensure the success of this very important fundraiser, we are seeking contributions to help defray the costs associated with the event so that all funds raised can go directly toward education scholarships for students in our community.

Generous donors like you are the key to our success and make it possible for us to provide local students with financial aid assistance.  We hope that we can count on your support to help us support the education of the youth in our community.

Sponsorship levels are listed below. Donation amounts can be cash donations or donations of products/services with a value at or above the specified amount. All levels will receive recognition on our web site, www.jarrodwittnebenmemorial.com.
