SSMG Raises Almost $30,000 for Local Charities

Leading Senior Care Provider Hosts Series of BBQ Fundraisers to Benefit Community Causes

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - January 05, 2015) - Senior Solutions Management Group (SSMG), a leading provider of superior-quality senior care across the Southeast, announced today that it raised almost $30,000 for community charities through its BBQ Doctor's Fast Friday Fundraising events in 2014.

In addition to his unique commitment to senior living solutions, SSMG President Chris Sides is passionate about barbecue. From that expertise, he created the BBQ Doctor's Fast Friday Fundraising events, which raised money for eight local charities in 2014, including the Boys & Girls Club, the Alzheimer's Association, The Joseph Sams School, the Kids First Child Advocacy Center, and the Smiley for Kylie Childhood Cancer Awareness Benefit.

Through these events, 2,987 "Doc in the Box" meals, which included fresh pulled pork, "Doc" cake (cornbread), coleslaw, potato chips, and a cookie, were sold. The time and resources required to sell this number of meals were impressive:

  • 1,493 pounds of pork cooked and chopped
  • 160 hours of cooking time
  • 747 pounds of coleslaw
  • 23.3 gallons of homemade barbecue sauce

One hundred percent of the proceeds-a total of $29,145-made from the Doc in the Box sales was donated to the eight charities.

"Community involvement is something we believe in," says Sides. "Our Fast Friday events helped to build and improve the communities where Senior Solutions' residents, staff, and facilities are located. We are thrilled to have raised money for these important causes, and are grateful to everyone who contributed."
