Classic Southern BBQ Chain Hosts Contests Where Patrons 10 & Under Can Submit 10 Acts of Kindness for a Chance to Win Prizes at Participating Locations July 15-September 18

Jacksonville, Fl., July 13, 2021 – In addition to its extensive menu of slow-smoked meats, comfort food sides and decadent desserts, Florida-based Woody’s Bar-B-Q has built a solid reputation among its fanbase for the delivery of excellent customer service over the last 41 years. The classic Southern BBQ chain looks to extend that spirit of service to others with a new promotion deemed “Celebrate Kindness” for its pint-sized patrons. Between July 15 and September 18, kids 10 and under can jot down 10 acts of kindness they’ve demonstrated over the summer on a contest form and return them to a participating Woody’s Bar-B-Q location. Winners will be drawn at random on September 30, 2021. First prize includes tickets for four to Universal Studios – Orlando (good through December 2022) and second prize is a $100 Q card – good for food or merchandise at any Woody’s Bar-B-Q location.

“At Woody’s Bar-B-Q, we’ve always prided ourselves in being a community-based company,” said Yolanda Mills-Mawman, Co-Founder and President of the BBQ chain. “At least once or twice a year since our launch, we have felt compelled to give back to our community – whether that’s a spare rib eating contest to benefit a local charity, a free dine-in event for first responders or a company-wide show of support for national charities like No Kid Hungry or Tim Tebow Foundation. We believe it’s important to encourage and celebrate the demonstration of kindness at home, at school, in sports, in our neighborhoods and beyond among the youngest members of the communities that surround our restaurants. We can’t wait to receive and read their responses, and we hope to highlight some of the most inspirational acts of kindness on our social media channels throughout the promotion. Kindness can be contagious, so we’re hoping the more that we share, the more children will want to take part by performing their own acts of kindness.”

About Woody’s Bar-B-Q®: After opening their first Woody’s Bar-B-Q in 1980, partners Woody Mills and Yolanda Mills-Mawman have spent nearly four decades setting the “bar” higher for classic Southern barbecue. From the humble beginnings of just one location in Jacksonville, Florida, a shared passion for barbecue, and a dog-eared collection of recipes, Mills and Mawman have grown the Woody’s Bar-B-Q brand to locations reaching from the Deep South where barbecue is king to the Northeast and Midwestern fronts. Perhaps best known for their legendary melt-in-your-mouth slow-smoked Signature Baby Back Ribs, Woody’s has also built quite a following among patrons with their secret recipe barbecue sauces and meats, as well as their freshly prepared comfort food-inspired side dishes.
