* Uncle Gary’s Rock & Rib Fest- Kids Cancer Foundation Benefit.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna be there!




What started out as a family get together has turned into a great community event. 13 years ago, Uncle Gary lost his 3 year old daughter, Ashley, to cancer. A couple of years later, he started a BBQ event in her honor. After realizing the outreach he had received from friends and family alike, Uncle Gary decided it was time to grow the event, and dedicate his event proceeds to “Kids Cancer Foundation” in Royal Palm Beach. Uncle Gary’s Rock and Rib Fest now includes great live music, bounce houses, kid’s Fun-zone, grab bags, raffles, face painting, playgrounds and so much more!

The “Kids Cancer Foundation” was Founded by Michelle O’Boyle RN, CPON, and is located in Royal Palm Beach FL, providing support services to over 300+ children with cancer. Visit their website at:

Located this year at the Wellington Amphitheater, located at 12100 Forest Hill Blvd. Wellington, FL. This facility has a beautiful playground area for the kids with fencing all around for their protection. I will have volunteers all day to watch them. There will be face-painting and balloon artists there from 3-7 to entertain the children.

For the adults there will be a parking lot full of vendors to enjoy and we will feature three live bands throughout the day.
