Spectrum employees Duke, Caryl, Becky & Stacey with Chef Lee Thomas of GrilleeQ.

BBQing quickly became a hobby for Lee Thomas as he began BBQing for events, family and friends. Witnessing the joy of people eating a variety of BBQ meats and vegetables cooked on charcoal grills, Lee started GrilleeQ in hopes of sharing his hobby and passion for BBQ with people to enjoy.

Lee is also very passionate about the San Leandro community. As a long-time friend and supporter of Spectrum Community Services, it made sense to partner with Lee for our first-ever “Drive Thru BBQ” fundraiser.

Lee donated all of his time, equipment and grilling expertise so the proceeds from this event will benefit Spectrum’s Senior Service Programs, including Senior Meals and Fall Prevention. The event was also sponsored by the Ford Store San Leandro, who has been a go-to resource for Spectrum’s meal delivery van fleet.

The turnout was great for this first-time event, as it sold out! Spectrum supporters were delivered their BBQ plates in branded bags that not only held their delicious food, but also program information, giveaway items and other promotions.

Delicious hot link on the grill!
