We’re thrilled to hold our annual Brunswick Stew Cook-Off to support the children and families helped by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
No one knows for sure where Brunswick stew originated. Yet, the public is invited to taste many different versions of this cherished southern dish in a charity fundraiser cook-off at Ray Price Harley-Davidson.
This year’s annual Brunswick Stew Cook-Off on March 16 will support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation "Ride for Kids." For a $5 donation, participants get all-you-can-eat access to numerous versions of the southern dish, traditionally a tomato-based stew made with various types of meat, beans and vegetables.
The all-you-can eat event begins at 9 a.m. with a blood drive and live music starting at 11 a.m. Judging and serving begins at 12 p.m. with customers and celebrity judges casting their ballots.
Cash prizes will be awarded for First, Second and Third Place, as well as a People’s Choice Trophy. Tasting participants who wear green get the opportunity to win great prizes by taking a spin at the Ray Price “Nitro Prize Wheel” in the dealership. Top prize is a $250 gift certificate.
Brunswick County, Va., and the town of Brunswick, Ga. both claim origin of the stew. Yet, it also has been attributed to Braunschweig, Germany. North Carolina natives make it their own by using pulled pork instead of beef.
“We may not know where Brunswick stew came from, but we sure know it’s delicious,” said Kris Weiss, director of marketing and promotions, Ray Price Harley-Davidson. “It’s one of our favorite contests, because everyone has their own recipe and we get lots of participants. We’re thrilled to do this to support the children and families helped by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.”
The nonprofit Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is dedicated to eradicating this disease and finding the cause and a cure for childhood brain tumors by supporting medical research, while also helping children and families affected by this life-threatening disease.
Residents are also reminded to drop off Easter baskets full of treats at the dealership throughout the month of March. Ray Price Harley-Davidson’s annual Easter Basket Ride takes place March 30. Motorcycle riders will transport hundreds of baskets to Radiant Church for an Easter event benefiting area underprivileged children.

When the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation was created in 1991, the diagnosis of a brain tumor was virtually a death sentence for a child. As the world's largest non-governmental source of funding for childhood brain tumor research, this 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization is dedicated to not only eradicating this disease, but to providing educational and emotional support to children and their families. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation supports medical research into causes and cures, its educational resources deliver comfort and hope to families, and the college scholarship program gives brain tumor survivors a boost for their future.
