2019 Ribs & ‘Ritas Fundraiser & Silent Auction

Fourteen years ago Clint & Heather Swindall established the First Chance Foundation, a private 501(c)3 non-profit to assist abandoned, abused, and neglected children. Last year the 4th Annual “Ribs & ‘Ritas” event was held to help support the organization’s programs. It was such a success we decided to do it again! You are invited to help us celebrate, while raising money and raising hope! You must be 21 to attend.

We have something for every adult!

Adding a fun new surprise this year! Two years ago we did the Take-A-Chance wall, last year we did a raffle…this year is going to be a surprise! Fun stuff!!
