FunniBonz at the Elixir Fund Event

David Duncan was the winner of the FunniBonz Survival Basket

FunniBonz attended the Elixir Fund's Third Annual Cocktail Party & Silent Auction at the Mercer Oaks Golf Club on Sunday afternoon.  The Elixir Fund is an organization created by Executive Director Megan McQuarrie in honor of her brother Kevin, who succumbed to cancer in 2003. 

Kevin, who was always Hollywood handsome, had an outgoing personality and a boatload of talent, inspired this wonderful program that helps provide comfort amenities to cancer patients such as DVDs and players, massages, manicures, music and more.

Over 30 items were auctioned off at the event including a complete set of books written and signed by Jamie Lee Curtis, a thick, soft hand-made flannel baby blanket, a Finding Nemo movie poster signed by the entire cast, a day of golf for four at Jasna Polana, center ice tickets for a Flyers hockey game, an autographed copy of Barbara Walters' autobiography and, of course, a FunniBonz Survival Basket.

Cocktails and hors d'ouevres were enjoyed by all and the Elixir Fund was able to raise some money for a wonderful cause.  FunniBonz certainly hopes to be involved in many more Elixir Fund events in the future.

Quick Mentions

FunniBonz is slowly but surely becoming the talk of the town (no matter what town you live in!)  Here are a few mentions of FunniBonz that we've found recently:

My Upper West

Thank you so much for the "shout outs" and keep them coming.  We really appreciate the fact that people love our sauce enough to taste it, share it, give it as gifts and pass on the buzz.

October has been a Blast!

And we've only just begun!  This past weekend, in spite of the fact that we started out with a little bit of rain, FunniBonz managed to make appearances at four separate venues.

On Saturday morning, we made our usual stop at the West Windsor Farmer's Market.  It was rainy but a few dedicated fresh food lovers braved the weather and helped make our morning. 

We also joined in on the celebration at the Hightstown Hometown Harvest Festival where we met some of the nicest residents and vendors ever.  (Much love to Gina from the Windsor Seafood Market, the girls from Muscle Maker Grill in East Windsor and the ministers from Out of the Pit BBQ!) The weather cleared up nicely and the residents started coming out to taste the sauce and take home some jars.

We rounded out our Saturday at Mercer County Park's Burger Mania where local businesses sold their own versions of the famous hamburger slider in competiton with one another.  Jeff Johnson of Hamilton's Carolina BBQ was the ultimate winner.

FunniBonz decided to opt out of the contest and serve something different.  We offered FunniBonz Sloppy Joe and Pulled Pork slider platters instead.  The pulled pork was slow roasted for nine hours, coated in FunniBonz Barbeque sauce and then topped with fresh home made cole slaw.  Our line didn't end until the evening was over and all bellies were full. A HUGE shout out to McCaffrey's of West Windsor for all of their help and support at the event.  We couldn't have done it without them!

Check out this article about Burger Mania from the Sunday Trenton Times.

On Sunday Jim made an appearance at the ShopRite of Mount Laurel at Union Mill Road where he sampled more of his now-famous pulled pork and cole slaw.

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend.  Thank you so much to all of our Customers, Fans and Friends who continually support us, and recognize that this sauce can be used all year 'round, even when it isn't "grill season" anymore.

Special thanks to the Lisa Sinatra Ward and her family for creating fans as far away as Arizona and to Robbin Kemp Dean for bringing some jars back to South Carolina!  We love and appreciate you!!

Two Brand New Locations

FunniBonz can now be found in two new locations.  The first is a gorgeous Gourmet Shop right on Main Street in New Hope, Pennsylvania called Randolph & Main.  This beautifully classic Victorian house has been turned into a sophisticated shop that provides everything from rich brownies to hard-to-find wine accessories to humorous refrigerator magnets.  The owners also support their community by carrying quite a few locally-made products including Giuseppe's line of delicious Italian tomato gravy (A must-try!) and FunniBonz Barbeque sauces.

If you are looking for an unusual gift or want some great items for a stylish gift basket, Randolph & Main is definitely the place for you!

The second location, in Newburgh, NY, is called Adam's Fairacre Farms.  There is no better place in Orange County, New York to get farm-crisp produce, freshly made baked goods or beautiful flower bouquets than Adam's.  They also carry juicy butcher-cut meats and seafoods, a remarkable assortment of imported cheeses and an immaculate gourmet department.

We haven't even gotten to the outside stuff such as landscaping, fencing and gardening equipment.  You just have to see it to believe it.

Become a believer and stop by either Adam's Fairacre Farms in NY or Randolph & Main in PA to get your favorite FunniBonz sauces.

Ain't nothin' funni 'bout a sauce this good!
