BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The annual Teen Challenge BBQ fundraiser is going curbside this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Director Michael Salinas said after the success of their Fair Frenzy drive-thru, the organization decided to adopt the same model for its Annual Top Sirloin BBQ Fundraiser.

Usually the fundraiser takes place in Shafter, but this year instead of the normal setting, Teen Challenge will be offering a DVD or video link including a special video presentation when you pick up your meal.

"From the convenience of home you can enjoy your meal and watch " A Night of Hope", a special video program containing updates, music, stories of transformation and the work that God continues through the ministry of Kern County Teen Challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic."

The fundraiser is happening this Friday and Saturday. To pre-order your meal, click here, or call (661) 399-CARE(2273).

The BBQ meal includes BBQ Top Sirloin with oven-roasted garlic potatoes, glazed carrots, and a sourdough roll. Homemade salsa upon request. Meals cost $20.
