Flame of Hope Memorial Restoration Project

Event Details

BBQ for the Brave will be at Back Bay Farmhouse Brewery from 4-9pm. Last year we had more than 500 attendees who enjoyed BBQ from various local restaurants who joined us on-site, as well as a variety of brews available from Back Bay Brewery, in a beautiful outdoor setting. Bring out the family and fellowship with us while we raise money for this worthy cause! This event is free to attend, please support by purchasing raffle tickets, merchandise, dedicated bricks, and more (under the tickets options). Support the vendors on site who are donating a portion of their profits to the Flame of Hope Restoration Project, and drink Back Bay Brewery's 757 Lager! Farmhouse will donate $1 for every 757 Lager sold on Friday May 19th! So everyone drink (responsibly) 757!

The Ride for the Fallen scheduled on Sat May 20th has been postponed! Stay tuned for more details! Thank you to AJ Gators, Jerry's of Indian River, Red Bones, 501 Kitchen + Bar for sponsoring this event. We will post on the Flame of Hope Memorial Facebook page with the new date!

In addition to our main event weekend, we partnered with local business to host community fundraising events, throughout the month of May, on-site at their location. Thank you to South Beach Grill, Audio One Live, Gringo's Taquiera, and Family Fun Xperience for hosting community fundraising events for the Flame of Hope Restoration Project throughout May!

All the proceeds will go to upgrading the Memorial Park to make it ADA accessible for everyone to enjoy, including a new brick walkway to the monument, "Lookout Loop" infinity walking path, meditation spaces with dedicated benches, and continued landscaping maintenance. Current estimates surpass $100,000 in needed upgrades! Any local businesses in the construction and landscaping industries who wish to donate their time to do some of this work and cut down on our costs will be recognized as a Sponsor and will receive a donation receipt for the equivilant value of in-kind donations (for tax purposes). We also have a range of sponsorship options for businesses as well as community groups (like MC clubs) who are willing to help promote and raise funds through crowd-funding/ cross-promoting. You can view the full sponsorship packet here.

There are SEVERAL ways you, your family, club, or company can join our fundraising efforts to make this possible! Please review the various sponsorships available, as well as the support packs including memorabilia merchandise and dedication items which will be permenantly installed on-site at the Flame of Hope Memorial.

Please review the ticket options and do not hesitate to reach out directly to our Project Chairman and VP of Community Development, Christina Sheldon, at vbjccommunity@gmail.com with any questions or ideas to collaborate on this or future VB Jaycees community service projects!
