Flood Relief Fundraiser Brings Best Cali BBQ to Colorado [INTERVIEW]


Alex Bein is bringing his BBQ favorites from California to Colorado, and it’s all to benefit flood victims so that they might enjoy this holiday season a little bit more.

On Nov. 16th in Ft. Collins, CO there will be a Flood Relief BBQ from 10:00 to 3:00 pm that hopes to serve 1500 plates @$10.00 a plate. The main cook is travelling from Santa Maria, CA with a load of food and supplies necessary for BBQ along with his smokers/grills and some extra cooks. A generous portion of what is needed to BBQ for the meals as well as gas to travel here is being donated so that as much as possible will go to Holiday Flood Relief.

I chatted with Alex about the event, and he was excited to share what is happening with it.

The idea is to help those people that have lost so much in hopes that they might have a little extra money to buy a Christmas tree or some presents. The fundraiser will be held at Dellenbach Chevrolet, and it will be a drive thru kind of set up. Organizers say they are trying to get a Boy Scout troop to help out opening up McClintock Beans to go with the Santa Maria Style beef tri- tips cooked over red oak coals, Suis Luis Sourdough, Babe Farm Salad,  Mc Lintock Beans and Jockos Salsa. This all started with an idea a CSU Fraternity student, Alex Bein from Santa Maria, had because he wanted to help out the flood victims. When some of his original ideas wouldn’t work out, he called up an old family friend from Santa Maria, his cousin Robert Bonilla. Robert and Alex’s parents started contacting their network of friends and donations started to roll in. Robbie was determined that he was going to make it happen and his friends and family are helping anyway they can.
