Annual Ribs For Kids Is Oct. 21

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

The local Signal Mountain Knights of Columbus Council #14521 and its members wanted to make a difference in the lives of kids and their families with special needs in the community.  The members voted to forge a new partnership in charity with Signal Centers of Chattanooga in support of their ongoing children’s program for special needs kids.  The fundraiser provided the community with the comfort food of good ole fashion Tennessee smoked bbq baby back ribs and chicken served on the third Saturday in October, the traditional date of the Tennessee vs. Alabama college football game.

Grand Knight Anthony Amabile of the Signal Mountain Knights of Columbus announces the third annual ‘Ribs for Kids’ event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 21.  

Pickup will be available at the St. Augustine Catholic Church parking lot, 1716 Anderson Pike, on Signal Mountain or at Signal Centers, Inc., 109 North Germantown Road. 

Packages include: Dinners: one whole chicken or one rack of ribs, with slaw, beans, bbq sauce and biscuits.  Family Combo includes one whole chicken and two racks of ribs, sides included. Or a three rack rib pack, ribs only.
