Marion Matters in Marion, Ohio, holds just one fund-raiser per year, so when they throw their annual Marion Matters BBQ Bash, they go all out. Chief among the draws at the event is a chance to win $10,000 in a cash drawing!

Other attractions include delicious food and live music, making the tax-deductible ticket price well worth it. This year the event is being held August 5 at The Palace Theater May Pavilion in Marion.
