The La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce will hold a Virtual Community Backyard BBQ on Thursday evening, Aug. 13, to recognize, honor and raise money for the 2020 Miss LCF and Royal Court scholarship. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.
The Royal Court comprises five high school students who are selected from the community each year to serve as official representatives of the city of La Cañada Flintridge and the Chamber of Commerce. Each year those selected, through a vigorous interview process, participate in publicity photos, promotional events, and assist in fundraising activities throughout the year. Their fundraising efforts support the Royal Court scholarship fund. The Royal Court also fully participates at various civic functions, including ribbon-cutting ceremonies, chamber mixers, Fiesta Days Memorial Day Weekend celebrations, and miscellaneous chamber-sponsored events.

“Sadly for the 2020 Royal Court, most of these events have been canceled due to COVID-19,” a chamber spokeswoman said. “The upcoming Community Backyard BBQ is a fun event for the entire community to enjoy.
“Los Gringos Locos BBQ Alley is providing the pre-ordered BBQ meals. Those purchasing tickets (two for $45) will pick up their BBQ at Los Gringos Locos, head home, grab their favorite streaming device and log into Zoom for a short program themed ‘We are Resilient.’ We will hear from chamber leaders, Bent Hansen, owner of Los Gringos Locos, and meet the Royal Court members. We will enjoy our Backyard BBQ apart, but together support our community.”
This virtual event for LCF Chamber is the first in a series of events planned for the remainder of 2020.
Tickets for the Backyard BBQ can be purchased on the
LCF Chamber website lacanada-flintridge.com.
