The Parker Lee Foundation's signature event.
It all began with the PBR500 at Gallo's Tap Room on 2/29/08 and is still going strong. Over 55,000 PBRs drank by nearly 6,500 attendees resulting in nearly $125,000 in total donations from our PBR events. Serving as a beacon of sun on your gloomy Ohio winter calendar, the PBR always takes place the last Saturday in February.
It's for the Kids!
Held every Sunday before Thanksgiving.
Kicking off the Parker Lee Foundation acknowledged "greatest week of the year" is the Chili Bowl.
Each November, 30 crock-pots of chili from the finest chili cooks in all of Central Ohio descend upon the Grandview Theater to create a caldron of fun (and a little heartburn). Plenty of chili dogs, cornbread, beer specials and a Browns loss greet the 100+ chili fans who come out each year to celebrate the Chili Bowl.
All Chili Bowl proceeds go toward our Eric J Yavitch Scholarship Fund which benefits two Central Ohio students each school year.
2 Fine 9s
Action happens again next Summer 2018.
The original intent of the 2 Fine 9s was "how about the PBR10K on a golf course"? That had disaster written all over it and was quickly dismissed.
Thirty-two foursomes of the some of the finest "golfers" in all of Central Ohio bring their A games to the outing each September. Proceeds from the 2 Fine 9s have helped a variety of local youth organizations with donations of $32,000 being raised from the five events.
