BPW London's 10th Annual
Gourmet BBQ Social and Fundraiser

June 19, 2018

BPW London June19 2018

For 10 years, BPW London member, Carole Orchard has hosted the Gourmet BBQ Social & Fundraiser and been the main "chef". This year was Carole's last bbq, as she will retiring and starting a new chapter in her life. Carole has opened up her home, her cookbooks and her generosity to BPW London over the past 10 years. She's had many helpers over the years but her "I couldn't have done it without..." helpers have been BPW London member Jeannette Veenstra and her husband, Wes. Jeannette and Wes have helped make burgers, helped set up and cleaned-up and for 10 years have been in charge of bbq'ing the burgers. Through the years this trio has smiled their way through bbq malfunctions, frozen burgers, rain, wind, humidity and darkness. Carole, Jeannette & Wes - thank you! For 10 years, the three of you have pulled together and presented us with a feast! The bbq has been one of the main fundraisers for BPW London, and the dedication of the three of you, and many others have helped make the event a successful fundraiser for the club and a truly fun evening.
