Real Life Bauer BBQ 2016

Michelle and Rick Bauer BBQ 1987

Michelle and Rick Bauer BBQ 1987

A very special event happened on the afternoon of Sunday, April 23, 2016. For the first time there was a Bauer BBQ in real life, hosted by Rick Bauer himself, Michael O’Leary. The event was put on by Daytime Stars and Strikes, the long time soap opera star fundraiser. The main event is what was originally a Bloss bowling event, but they have paired it with other events in the past, including a concert and a dinner in honor of Guiding Light‘s 75th anniversary. This time they had an event called the Bauer BBQ #1.

They had made a deliberate choice this year to have it in a smaller venue that would involve fewer fans, but would provide a bigger profit for the charity. That meant there weren’t as many tickets for it as other events, but as they sold out both well before the event and before the other two events that were part of the weekend. Hopefully the successful sell out means that they will repeat it next year.

Sadly I don’t have a report from anyone who was actually there, but if there is anyway, I’ll be there next time.

Read more about what they told us ahead of time about the event here: https://glmanny.wordpress.com/2015/09/02/bauer-bbq-2016/

As soon as I get any word one way or the other I’ll report it on the blog.
