Summer BBQ Fundraiser to Support Patient-Care Initiatives at Strong

In collaboration with Spencerport's Texas Bar-B-Q Joint restaurant, we're hosting our very first Summer BBQ Fundraiser in support of patient- and family-centered care at Strong Memorial Hospital. The event features chicken barbeque meals packaged to-go by some of URMC’s very own celebrity “Pit Masters” and promises to be a fun and delicious way to take care of dinner while supporting a great cause.
