Weber announced today that they’re partnering with Prime Video and the non-profit Operation BBQ Relief (OBR) for an event to honor local Gold Star, active military, and veterans and their families in Nashville. The free “Dinner and a Show” event will take place on Monday, July 11th at Nissan Stadium and will feature a screening of The Terminal List while serving up BBQ.
Weber actively supports veterans and military families with programs like our unique initiative with Operation BBQ Relief and The Always Serving Project® for veterans and first responders. The ‘Dinner and a Show’ event is a fun opportunity to show our appreciation locally in a city that’s well known for its barbecueBeau Warren, Marine Veteran and President, Americas of Weber Inc.
OBR’s The Always Serving Project utilizes the healing power of BBQ by participants teaming up with pitmasters and chefs to learn new skills through a mobile two-day course. Weber also shows support to veterans and military families with product discounts through the ID.Me programs and provides specially adapted grills for select wounded veterans.
We’re proud to participate in events like this for veterans and their families, and believe in the healing power of barbecueDavid Marks, Head of Business Development, of OBR
From the press release, OBR is a non profit that provides meals in times of need, feeding first responders and communities impacted by natural disasters and Covid-19. OBR also offers year-round programs like The Always Serving Project and has helped the Nashville community in the recent past. After the severe storms and tornado in March 2020, OBR provided 120,780 meals, and after the Christmas Day 2020 explosion in downtown Nashville they provided meals to first responders and volunteers.
The meal for the “Dinner and a Show” is smoked turkey, smoked & flame-kissed sausage, baked beans, and cole slaw. It’ll be prepared on Weber’s new, limited-edition 70th anniversary kettle grill.
The Terminal List follows James Reece, played by Pratt, after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. When Reece returns home, he begins to question both his memories of what happened and the world around him. Many of The Terminal List production team – the cast, crew, and advisors – are former members of the U.S. military and provide a layer of authenticity to the production.
