  • | 11:00am - 3:00pm | Charity, Fundraiser, Families, Adoption,
    - Families Are Special, Inc., a non profit adoption agency, will be having its 12th annual BBQ Bash on June 11, 2016 at First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 6701 JFK Blvd., North Little Rock. The BBQ Bash will begin at 11:00 am and will end at 3:00 pm. Tickets for the event are $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for school age children (5-12), and youngsters are admitted free.

    The monies raised at this event will help enable more Arkansas families of average income to adopt children out of foster care. Since FASI was started in 1993, we have helped place over 745 children in permanent, loving homes. Today there are over 560,000 children in the U.S. Foster Care system and FASI is committed to help place many more of these children in their “forever families”.

    The mission of FASI, an Arkansas based, private, non-profit adoption agency, is
    -- To educate Arkansas families on tasks and resources for adoption;
    -- To prepare Arkansas families to adopt waiting children; and
    -- To reduce and/or eliminate unnecessary costs and time delays in the
    adoption process.

    BBQ for the event will be donated by area restuarants. We will have a live and a silent auction with our auctioneer Layton Howell with Howell Auction Service, LLC and our MC for the event this year will be Craig O'Neill from Today's THV Channel 11. Dr. Elson Bihm from UCA will be performing a magic show for everyone and NLRPD office Tommy Norman will also be at the festivities. We also will be raffling off a large BBQ grill! There is so much fun to be had for young and old alike!

    Tickets for the event and raffle tickets for the grill may be purchased at the door of the event or by calling the FASI office at 501-758-9184.
