2014 Cookout For a Cause


October 7, 2014

CHARLOTTE, NC – Headlines Barber Shop held its 2nd Annual Cookout for a Cause on September 28 at Reedy Creek Park.  Last year’s event was a great success with the barber shop collecting enough money to provide over 5,000 meals to Charlotte families in need.

This year’s tally was 10,654 pounds of food which equals 7,102 meals to Charlotte families in need.  All proceeds from the cookout were donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina.

Nearly 100 people attended the free cookout.  Money was raised three ways: through the sale of raffle tickets, through a silent auction and through cash donations.   

Headlines Barber Shop owner, Derrick Bennett, felt as though the cookout was an important event to hold.  “I wanted everyone to have fun but also think about those in need.  I have a 4 year old daughter and I want her to remember that we are blessed and to always share those blessings with others.”
