Ponca City Now - September 17, 2015 2:00 pm

The 2015 Cherokee Strip Cook-Off is Saturday at Lake Ponca.

Join Professionals Today for the 29th Annual State Championship Cherokee Strip Cook-Off. It will be a weekend full of entertainment and competition at one of the most beautiful cook-off locations available, Ponca City’s Lake Ponca .

Activities include a raffle for a Large Green Egg Outdoor Cooker, musical entertainment and a People’s Choice Award given to the crowd-selected favorite BBQ and chili cooks.

The cook-off is an Oklahoma State Championship Cook-Off and is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society . This gives you just one more reason to participate in this year’s event.

The beneficiary for all money raised is Hospice of North Central Oklahoma. To date, Professional’s Today has contributed more than $400,000 to this worthy organization.

HONCO offers medical and emotional support to terminally ill patients and their families. Their services are individualized to meet family and patient needs and range from social services to 24-hour emergency care skilled nursing.

Hospice of North Central Oklahoma is a non-profit, freestanding, community hospice, existing to fulfill a mission, as opposed to making a profit. Support coverage includes all of Kay County and areas of Grant, Noble, and Osage Counties. They do not charge any expenses to patients or their families.

Admission to the event is free and tasting kits will be sold for $5 in advance to the public as a fundraiser for Hospice of North Central Oklahoma. All donations are tax-deductible.
