Gaineville Jaycees Gainesville Jaycees

BBQ Competition

Hawgin on Lanier

While a quality BBQ competition is what is drawing you to Gainesville, we feel it's very important to explain why we're hosting this competition: to raise funds for our charities. Our charities include the Gut Check program and Empty Stocking Fund.

Started in 1997, GutCheck was created by the Gainesville Jaycees to teach young men discipline and leadership in a safe and structured,  high-energy environment. The free three day program is held every year in July. 

Since 1955 the Gainesville Jaycees has been providing Christmas to needy children in the Hall County Community. The Jaycees raise funds throughout the year to provide Christmas to hundreds of children who are chosen through our special partnerships with local schools. The children receive warm clothing, shoes, educational toys and items necessary for daily living.
