Great Food

This year Jason Carter of Hawg Sauce Catering has generously offered to donate and prepare all the Ribs, Chicken, and Pulled Pork for Soul Shine. Jason will provide the traditional fuel needed to move your feet with some savory authentic barbeque. Jason is an inspiration, and we feel blessed to have him as part of Soul Shine. Thanks Jason!
