Events

Supporting Our Mission

Throughout the year, The Link hosts several events to support The Link’s mission through serving our neighbors or raising needed funds.

Just the Basics

Household & Hygiene Distribution Event

The Link partners with churches, service groups, businesses and volunteers to gather and distribute basic household and hygiene items. In a single morning, $10,000 of goods are distributed with about 100 volunteers engaged in the effort.

Smokin’ for The Link

The “Rib Fest” (as it has become affectionately known) had another successful year in 2017. A dozen teams made their way to the Glacial Ridge Winery to smoke and grill over 4,000 lbs. of ribs. And pies. So. Many. Delicious. Pies. Thanks to the efforts of more than 100 volunteers who organize the event, bake pies and smoke ribs, over $16,000 was raised to support  The Link. A big thank you to the generosity and support of almost 700 people supporting this event, making it the premier culinary + music event of the summer (in our not-so-humble opinion).
