Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last weekend, and with it arrived winds and flooding that have damaged Houston and surrounding cities in Southeast Texas. And when there is an emergency, Operation BBQ Relief responds.
All Sonny’s BBQ locations are firing up the smokers and assisting in the relief efforts by donating 10 percent of all sales on Wednesday, September 6th to Operation BBQ Relief (OBR), an organization that leverages the expertise of pitmasters with their ability to quickly mobilize teams into any area where disaster disrupts and tears apart the lives of Americans.
The funds will help support their core operations of providing meals to displaced residents and emergency personnel during times of natural and other disasters.
In 2016, Sonny’s BBQ worked hand in hand with OBR to help with Louisiana flood relief, and they're teaming up with the organization again to do their part.
At the Apopka Sonny's: 2210 East Semoran Boulevard

The Apopka Sonny's is open 10:45am - 9:35pm

About Operation BBQ Relief
Operation BBQ Relief was founded in May 2011 in response to a need for relief efforts in tornado-stricken Joplin, Missouri, a community of about 50,000 residents. Volunteers from competition BBQ teams from eight states answered the need to help feed displaced families, police, fire, National Guard and emergency personnel.
We were able to serve over 120,000 meals over 13 days. Food was delivered to shelters, hospitals, senior living communities and the Humane Society. Volunteers loaded food into vehicles and delivered directly to families in the impacted areas. The operation was made possible by all who contributed food and supplies and funding from across the country.
Operation BBQ Relief continues to respond to natural disasters and other situations to help feed displaced residents and emergency personnel. It strives to provide compassion, and offer hope and friendship to those whose lives have been affected by disasters across the United States. We leverage our expertise in cooking and catering barbecue meals with our ability to quickly mobilize our teams into any area where disaster disrupts and tears apart the lives of Americans.
