Fisher House Founders Day BBQ
Honoring and celebrating Fisher House Founder,
September 26, 1910 - June 4, 1999
On September 16, 2022 we celebrated Fisher House founder, Zachary Fisher on the BAMC Fisher House grounds. 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.
With the support of H-E-B and Wounded Warrior Project, Fisher House, Inc. was able to host this amazing event. 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!!
