A Worthy Cause…

As if the great time we will have September 9th and 10th were not enough, we are very pleased to announce that Fire & Feast BBQ Competition & Festival 2011 will be raising funds for the Mississippi Firefighters Memorial Burn Association!

Mississippi Firefighters Memorial Burn Association (MFMBA) was founded in 1976 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the mission of offering financial assistance to burn victims who truly need our help to overcome some of the hardships a serious injury presents.

We know that area firefighters and fire departments, backyard and Professional teams, and our attendees will appreciate that their participation in Fire & Feast will go a long way toward supporting the Mississippi Firefighters Memorial Burn Association.

To our wonderful Sponsors:  Were it not for you, this relationship could not have developed.  A very special thank you from Fire & Feast, from the Yazoo County CVB, and from the MFMBA.   Your support is appreciated by us all.
