DD hosts successful chicken BBQ


The Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities hosted its 34th annual chicken barbecue Thursday.

This event is the LCBDD’s largest fundraiser.

This year they prepared 3,000 chicken dinners complete with applesauce, chips, roll, and cookie all for $10.

The dinners were again popular as they sold out around 5:15 p.m.  Those with presale tickets still got their meals.

Superintendent Saul Bauer said they did a record 1,500 meals were delivered at lunchtime.

Proceeds from the chicken fundraiser go to a variety of services.  Some of those services include buying a tombstone for those with disabilities who can’t afford one, helping with family needs, fitness scholarships, helping providers continue with services, and many more.

October is also National Disability Employment Awareness month.  Superintendent Bauer also thanked the many businesses and organizations that employ people with disabilities.
