SSMG Helps Raise 6K for Knox County Mobile Meals

Leading Senior Care Provider's BBQ Fundraising Event at Oakwood Senior Living Is a Big Success

KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - April 07, 2015) - Senior Solutions Management Group (SSMG), a leading provider of senior care across the Southeast, announced that the fundraising BBQ lunch hosted at Oakwood Senior Living in Knoxville, TN raised $6,000 to benefit Knox County Mobile Meals.

The BBQ Doctors, an award-winning, outreach barbecue team of Senior Solutions Management Group, gathered Thursday, March 26th to cook up "Doc in the Box" meals to benefit Knox County Mobile Meals. For every meal purchased that day by local community members and nearby businesses, two seniors in the area will receive a meal delivered to their home.

"It was great to see all the new and familiar faces come by to support local seniors," says Chris Sides, President of SSMG and official BBQ cook for the event. "The turnout was truly unbelievable."

In addition to the event attracting attention to the BBQ fundraiser, it also gave local community members, including Knoxville Mayor Tim Burchett, the opportunity to see the former Oakwood Elementary School's transformations to Oakwood Senior Living, a SSMG operated community. Renovations began two years ago to the Oakwood building, and the new senior living community will begin accepting residents in April. Learn more about Oakwood Senior Living here.
