Fisher House Founders Day BBQ

Honoring and celebrating Fisher House Founder,

Zachary Fisher 

September 26, 1910 - June 4, 1999

Fisher House founder, Zachary Fisher. We had many supporters and volunteers who made this event a huge success. The Young Farmers from Gonzales brought 5 huge smokers and cooked all night to prepare the brisket and sausage to feed all the people that attended, and the reviews were outstanding! A total of 1700 lbs of brisket, 700 lbs of sausage and 140 gallons of beans were prepared by this wonderful group. “This was the best brisket I ever tasted” said one of the BAMC hospital employees. 


Volunteers from USAA, H-E-B, Broadway Bank, American Legion and Costco served all this delicious food. Live music from The SA Hitlist kept the party going all day. This was definitely a day to remember, the program also included a volunteer award presentation (see page 7) and the San Antonio Defense Gang presented Fisher House, Inc. with a check for $77,710.00. Former Kono-101 host, Dave Rios was there to emcee the event, while more volunteers from the 4-H club and NuStar Energy helped with the event. A special thank you to BAMC facilities and volunteers for all their support on this day to honor and celebrate Zachary Fisher.
