United Way of Nevada County

What's happening now at your United Way:

Grilles 'n' Grilles is the United Way of Nevada County's signature summer event. This year, we're ramping it up with a KCBS BBQ Competition in addition to our traditional backyard BBQ competition and Car & Motorcyle Show. And new this year as well is our first annual Derek Sorensen Memorial Disc Golf Tournament brought to you by the Gold Country Disc Golf Association.

There will be live music, beer and wine, and fun for the entire family, including a bounce house and great vendors! Did we mention raffle prizes. Cars and motorcycles will be on display, and an award will be given out to the most popular. And, Breaking News, SacEV is bringing cars of the future that you can drive today. See the Nissan World Car of the Year and Best Family Vehicle along with Consumer Report's best car ever, the Tesla Model S, and more.

BBQ teams will serve up samples to the public during the People's Choice competition for the backyard teams and the KCBS competitors will be providing their excllent BBQ for tastings. Enjoy some great barbecue and vote for your favorite backyard team. KCBS judges will choose the best of the pros. And the most spirited team will receive the spirit award.

If you want to help, volunteer at the event, enter a backyard BBQ team, or a KCBS/CBBQA ToY team, enter a car or motorcycle, enter the disc golf tournament, sponsor the event, become a vendor, or just plan to attend and have fun!
