BWorks, BBQ & Bluegrass – Saturday, August 5 from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM

If you like bikes, brews, BBQ, and music, mark your calendar for Saturday, August 5, 6 – 9 p.m. for the BWorks’ BBQ and Bluegrass event that includes a silent auction to benefit St. Louis BWorks at Mad Art Gallery in Soulard. Music during the event will be performed by Susan Marting and Cat’s Away Bluegrass Band.

Tickets are $25/person in advance (ends on July 31) or $35 at the door (½ price for kids age 12-18, free for kids under age 12) and include’s entrance, one beverage, and BBQ (a vegetarian option is available when you select your ticket).

Purchase tickets online by July 31 through Eventbrite. Mad Art is located at 2727 South 12th St., 63118.

Proceeds from the door and silent auction will help support this nearly 30-year-old 501(c)3 organization that helps children and youth in St. Louis discover their potential through bicycles (Bicycle Works), books (Book Works) and bytes (Byte Works).

Last year’s event raised more than $6,000 for BWorks and the donations helped provide much needed new classroom furniture and more.

Silent auction items currently include gift certificates to Yemanja Brasil, Savor Saint Louis Food Tours, O’Fallon Brewery tour and tasting for 10, a Tom Jones custom suit and more.
