In 2012, Jim and Gayla Smith hosted a BBQ in their backyard to raise money for Building for America’s Bravest, a proud program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Through Building for America’s Bravest, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation builds specially adapted, custom designed smart homes to help restore independence and improve the quality of life for our nation’s most catastrophically injured service members.

Jim and Gayla asked for a $20 donation and raised $2000 the very first year. The BBQ has continued to grow, and has become a highly anticipated annual event at the CD & ME Special Events venue in Frankfort, IL.
