Annual Big Bad BBQ for Special Olympics

Join Danto Builders and the Florida Design & Construction Professionals (FLDCP) for the 5th Annual Big Bad BBQ and professional networking event benefiting Special Olympics Florida!

Guests can feast on all-you-can-eat BBQ and drinks, including ribs, chicken, hot dogs, corn on the cob, sides, cornbread, beer, wine, champagne and dessert, and enjoy auctions, live music by KC and the Sunshine Band vocalist James Magnole, and live art by local therapeutic mobile artist Nikipaint Studios!

The Broward Health bus will also be on site offering free heart-rate checks. Attendees will have the opportunity to network, mix and mingle with Broward’s most passionate Special Olympics athletes, and enjoy great food, drinks and entertainment.

All proceeds are tax-deductible and will benefit Special Olympics Florida. Casual dress is encouraged, and on-street parking will be available.


Purchase tickets by October 10 and receive a $10 arcade card from Xtreme Action Park, and a Seminole Casino $100 play card (for new Seminole Casino members) and $150 gift certificate (dining or brunch) to NYY at the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek – a $260 value.  Gift cards are limited to first 600 registrants, and you must attend the event to receive the gift cards. 

Last year, the Big Bad BBQ raised more than $25,000 in support of 23 Special Olympics sports programs and 5,100 athletes offered in Broward County year-round.

“Special Olympics programs provide the invaluable gifts of self-confidence and self-image to our athletes, which carry over into all aspects of their lives,” said Linda Mills, director of Special Olympics Broward County. “There is no question that Special Olympics is a valuable part of this community, and we need help from sponsors like Danto Builders and events like the Big Bad BBQ to keep our great program growing.”

Key sponsors for this year’s Big Bad BBQ include Dave Giannone’s Complete Marine, Larry Kline Wholesale Meats, Village Grille and Village Pump, freshpoint, Sally Sherman Salads, Hott Leggz, Funky Buddha Brewery, Sea Watch, Oak & Cane Rum, Coccadotts Cake Shop, Chase Roofing, Tru Colors, Spirit Airlines, Corporate Insurance Advisors, The Blue Book, Broward Health, Beachcombers Resort and Villas, Danto Electric and Permit Professionals.

Price: $25 for FLDCP members and $35 for non-members. $45 at the door for everyone.
