Past Events

Pack the Park

June 2024 / Nymeo Field

What a great night spent with fellow Blue-Collar Project supporters. My Brother was able to join in throwing out the first pitch. We were able to meet a lot of new faces who stopped by our table, cheer on our hometown Frederick Keys and wrap up the night with an awesome fireworks display. Nothing more American Blue-Collar than a night of baseball, hot dogs, friends and family.

Thanks to all who came out in support.

Second Annual Blue-Collar Project Golf Classic

May 2024 / Hosted By P.B. Dye Golf Club

In True Blue-Collar Fashion everyone showed up to our sold-out golf classic in spite of some rain. It was a great day of golf, networking, drinks, (lots of drinks, thanks to Scotty’s Vodka and Big Truck Beer) food and fun.

The Morning started with Breakfast, Bloody Mary’s, some coffee and networking. Then we tee-ed off for a great round of golf with lots of contests, games and cocktails. We finished the day back at the club house for a great dinner, awards ceremony, raffles and door prizes.   

A heart felt thank you to all our Sponsors, Donors, Players and Volunteers. With out them this wouldn’t be near as much fun.

Second Annual Dinner And Whiskey Tasting

November 2023 / Hosted by The Red Horse Steakhouse

Back by popular demand, our annual Whiskey Tasting dinner was another sold out success.

We tasted 6 + hard to find and unique whiskeys, paired with a four-course meal. The first pour was served with a welcoming charcuterie and some mingling. Followed by bacon wrapped jalapeno appetizer, a surf & turf dinner and a chocolate cake desert. Each paired with a carefully selected whiskey. Following dinner, we wrapped up the evening with door prizes, raffles and a very interactive auction.

Once again, a sincere thanks to all our sponsors, participants, volunteers and donors. I am continually humbled by their incredible support.
