FlightHub Sponsors Annual Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Ribfest

It’s time for Ribfest! We’re proud to announce that FlightHub is sponsoring Ribfest once again! Ribfest is an annual fundraising event hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters West Island that brings in approximately 50% of their yearly revenue. Donations go to supporting the organization and creating mentorship programs for at-risk youth. Since 2015, Ribfest has been a pillar of our community, raising over $75,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters West Island in 2019 and welcoming over 30,000 guests. 

“Funds raised at the festival through donation collection, as well as merchandise and drink sales, will go back to our three core programs, which help ensure the youth in our community are well-supported to reach their full potential.” – Megan Semenchuk, Director of BBSWI

Returning favourites Ribbers Ribs Royale, Dinosaur BBQ and Fat Boys will be on-site as well as six food vendors and a new online marketplace! BBBSWI Director Megan Semenchuk says this year’s festival has been re-imagined to “a take-out style in order to maximize the safety and security of community members and the general public.” 

Part of the FlightHub team will be working as volunteers and showing our support, so come say hello and enjoy some yummy food while contributing to a great cause at the same time!

Ribfest takes place Friday August 13th to Sunday August 15th 11am to 8pm at 13665 Boul de Pierrefonds,Pierrefonds, QC H9A 2Z4
