The Hot Dog BBQ

The Hot Dog BBQ was an initiative brought forth by Realtor Ryan Ligeza. He wanted to give back to the community and really believes in what the Burlington Humane Society stands for and the amazing work that they do. It was not hard for Ryan to find other local businesses that believed in and want to support the Humane Society as much as he does. And with the support of the sponsors and the help of the Burlington Humane Society, the Hot Dog BBQ was created.
