Second Real Life Bauer BBQ

The Fourth of July has always been the important to the Bauer family. Starting in the early 1980s it was celebrated with a big party that everyone in town attended called the Bauer BBQ. The Bauer BBQ episodes were always some of the highest rated of the year. Manny was even married at the Bauer BBQ one year. Revisit the Bauer BBQ through the years:

Last Time on Guiding Light

Daytime Stars and Strikes began as a Bloss Bowling charity event raising money focused on the famous Bloss pairing from Guiding Light, Jerry verDorn (Ross Marler) and Elizabeth Keifer (Blake Thorpe Marler) back in 2004. At first it was in aid of cancer (verDorn is a cancer survivor), but has been focused on autism for a number of years now. The major event for many years was a bowling event where you could watch soap stars (now grown to a large group from different soaps) or pay more and play with them.

A Page is Turned

Over the years they tried other side events including concerts and most notably a dinner in 2012 in honor of the 75th anniversary of Guiding Light. Last year they amazingly decided to stage the first real life Bauer BBQ. Sadly I didn’t get a chance to go, but it made me determined to go this year and I’m proud to say I took a leap of faith and bought a ticket for all 3 events that weekend. I hope to see you there.

This year they’ve finally decided that transportation issues for fans coming from out of town could be eliminated if another event replaced bowling so joining the Bauer BBQ this year is Sing it for Autism Karaoke Event on Friday, October 6, 2017 and Venice the Series Gives Back to Autism on Saturday, October 7, 2017.

    I thought this would be a good time to remind “Guiding Light” fans that they have a chance to attend a real life Bauer BBQ. Why haven’t you bought your tickets yet?
